Planets Packed in Tight

And you think the lines at movie blockbuster releases are packed. When it comes to interstellar planetary packing, it seems Kepler-11 is the winner for stuffing more stuff in a small space than I can into a UHaul truck when moving! lol.

NASA's Kepler Spacecraft Discovers Extraordinary New Planetary System

Although I must admit, I'm getting a bit bored with all these discoveries of things that aren't even remotely close to looking like our solar system. The gas giants are huge, the Earth's are SUPER, and the temperature extremes are, well, extreme.

I do wish the aliens would just show up, smack some sense into the human race, and set us on the right path to living sustainably on this finite Earth. Eh, one can dream.

Well, if Hollywood films for the past 50+ years are any indication, a lot of people have this dream, LOL! ;)
