"Astronomers have this evening revealed they are a step closer to finding extra terrestrial life forms after capturing the first images of a new solar system."
Some beautiful shots on the slideshow in this article: In search for aliens, astronomers unveil camera that will find extra-terrestrial life.

Awsome, I want one of those cameras. Maybe I can find bigfoot with out the blurs.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Wish they would find something but I hope it doesn't find us.

Remote Reconnaissance of Another Solar System

This visualization, produced using the Hayden Planetarium's Digital Universe--the most comprehensive and scientifically accurate, three-dimensional map of the known universe-- shows where the star HR 8799 is in relation to our solar system. Recently, a team of researchers led by the American Museum of Natural History used a suite of high-tech instrumentation and software called Project 1640 (www.amnh.org/project1640) to collect the first chemical fingerprints, or spectra, of the four red exoplanets orbiting this star. This visualization also shows other stars that are known to harbor planetary systems (stars with blue circles around them). HR 8799's system, which is 128 light years away from Earth, is one of only a couple of these stars that have been imaged, and the only one for which spectroscopy of all the planets has been obtained. Over the next three years, the team will survey many of these other stars in the same manner in which they studied HR 8799.
