A European group has found many more new planets outside our solar system, including some that are only a little bigger than Earth. There's a really cool, low-bandwidth video here: http://www.eso.org/gallery/v/Videos/VNRs/vid-39c-09_FLASH.flv.html

@djjd62,
That happens to my pies, too. Sometimes I just call it cobbler.

Not that I've tried this in the past few decades.

Tried what? Baking coffee cakes or visiting near-by planets?
