Hi All, I'm glad you two decided to work the numbers. A few million movies when all is said and done is about right. There are a few factors which were not mentioned that change your calculations in detail: things like the switch from lower to higer resolution, an overlap between fields of view by a...

Re: Dark matter

Would like to take the opportunity to ask a couple more questions -- are the discovered planets being discovered in our own galaxy? Would elliptical galaxies contain planets? :? Hi Startrak, Yes, all of the over 200 exo-planets discovered so far are all inside the Milky Way Galaxy. More than that, ...

As far as I was aware, the scores for both advanced together but at the moment, at least 3 "Sensitivity" scores per hour are not registered. In the G...

For us in the Northern Hemisphere the days will start getting longer again (for the next six months at least). Wohoo! Sorry for t...
