    Washington Post article echoed on NZ's primary news website.

    The quote's not great; not a fact. Interesting item overall, but not "news" to most here!

    Astronomer Phil Plait dissected the hoax hypothesis in a 2001 blog post that holds up as the definitive debunking. "Their evidence is actually as tenuous as the vacuum of space itself," Plait wrote.

    Measure once, cut twice. Practice makes perfect.

    Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.

    I'm not in either one of those links. I need to change my sig line to "the other, far less popular Phil".
