    You philosophers who are interested in SETI might want to watch some AAS videos. For the Kepler mission go to:
    http://kepler.nasa.gov/news/ind...­
    Part I is good, but the second part has no sound. There are additional video accesses shown on the right of the screen. Those videos are on other astronomy subjects presented. The continuing big story from Kepler is that almost all stars appear to have planetary systems. Since it takes longer observation time to see multiple occultations from planets with periods of one year and longer, we will have to wait several more years to see data from systems like the solar system. It now looks like the majority of systems will have more planets in close orbits compared to the solar system. It also appears that super-earths (1.2 - 2.0 x earth radius) are common even though we have none in our system. We will probably see lots of theoretical papers about the geology of super-earths in the future.

    I am hoping to attend if a minor surgical operation doesn't disuade me.
