Hubble Finds 100 Planets

Here's some news that will surely stoke your imagination:
The Hubble Space Telescope may have discovered as many as 100 new planets orbiting stars in our galaxy...If confirmed it would almost double the number of planets known to be circling other stars to about 230. The discovery will lend support to the idea that almost every sunlike star in our galaxy, and probably the Universe, is accompanied by planets.
This discovery is being hailed as perhaps "the most significant advance in discovering extra-solar planetary systems" in years. And, in order to fulfill my political obligations to the readers of, I will note that the Hubble telescope may be forced to cease operations due to President Bush's proposed Excellent Mars Adventure.
