I feel like NASA needs to temper their "WE HAVE THE GREATEST ANNOUNCEMENT IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND TOMORROW AT 2:00PM" kind of press releases. This is exciting, if incremental, work on exoplanet discovery. If they discovered liquid water, or O2/CO2 in the atmosphere of a planet, then make that press release. I'm constantly disappointed by what should be really exciting news, due to their overexuberant hype.
