    BBC News - Alien oceans could be detected by telescopes

    This is really awesome and can't wait to see what they come up with. I recommend reading the entire article as well, much longer than what I posted due to copyright.

    thx.

    Thats a huge step forward, if they can do it on a wide/deep field, that would be a huge time saver as well.

    How funny would it be of the aliens knew we were looking at then and shine a mirror at us so we'd think it's water, but when we get there, it's a desert!?

    Well, OK, maybe that's not funny.
