New Planet discovered

The European Space Agency’s discovery of a new planet five times the size of the Earth that just might have water and thus could support life is great news, although it probably means we’ll now start getting scare stories about alien terrorists from the wackier members of the House of Lords. The news has of course already provoked comic comment…

Talking of topical SF gags, this satirical item (“Star Trek Geeks Could Be Up In Arms Over Proposed New Phaser Laws“) will I am sure provoke howls of anger from the US where the terrible events in Virginia are still raw. I gather that a similar gag about Daleks over on Outpost Gallifrey forums has not gone down well, either…
