You are here.... "They" may be there...

This is the fantastic artwork showing where we are -- 250,000 light years
from the centre of the galaxy, and where the Kepler space
telescope is focussing in its search for earth-sized planets....(here)
Kepler tweets that it's found 41 new planets.  And that now the concentration will be on finding earth-sized ones.
It may be in my lifetime that we find one.  What a fantastic, exciting time for science.  The Higgs is found and may lead to another universe... The Curiosity lands without a hitch and is looking for life present or past on Mars, and Kepler is making great progress in finding habitable exo-planets.....
