Zarmina's World

Re: yesterday's post about the newly discovered, Earth-like planet Gliese 581, the discoverer has given it a much more pleasant name: Zarmina's World.

He also says he's "99.999% certain" that it supports life. Wow, that's not the sort of thing you usually hear from a scientist!

Zarmina's World is wonderful - I love it! Very old-skool sci-fi.

Love the name. Hopefully this will inspire humanity to invest in space exploration again.

I suggest we launch a human printer ASAP so we can start transmitting uploads as soon as it arrives.
