I sense a habit of oversimplifying. It seems they've attempted to merge two concepts into one. Oh well. I still love El Reg.

Oh, and I found this one in the security section. I would think any security angle regarding an exoplanet would be a matter of science fiction. Perhaps it's about finding us a new planet in time to deal with the demise of this one. {Insert post-apocalyptic scenario here.}
