Good article:

Darby, the article ended too soon. What becomes of this gas? It disperses to the far and wide, I suppose, but what I'm asking is: Is more known about it or does it just become part of the universe's aether - lost to our watching?

If you know a way to find the answer online, I'll be glad to go there. Thanks. I love a mystery (old TV show?) but I want it solved. :-)

This thread has been neglected, and it's a good spot for quite a range of astronomy news, so I'll give it a nudge here....

Another exoplanet that appears to be more massive than Earth, so any future astronauts who boldly go will want to consider some serious weight training.

Thanks, Biv. I saw that. They seem quite excited about this one. Would be great to find "intelligent" life. You know what I mean - people we could communicate with.
