Tweet of the Day, We Take Another Giant Step Towards Atomic Horror Science edition.

Looking through the telescope and seeing alien planets?  Totally a thing now.  …OK, except that it’s totally not what they’re doing, but gimme this one.

Entertainingly, the high-tech gizmo that they’re using to look at alien planets is called CHARIS, which is actually one of the Ancient Greek Graces. I say ‘entertainingly’ because I assumed that the name in question would be something suitably ominous and foreboding, probably because I was thinking of Charon or something similar.  Nope, it’s a relentlessly cheerful name.  Guess it’s not set in a horror novel universe after all…
