I don't see what the big deal is that NASA felt the need to announce that they were going to have press conference last week and build up all of this anticipation. Why not say "we found reminance of a super nova" last week?
reminance of a super nova.... could they not have just posted that on their site??? ive waited all day for that???

If anything happens, NASA is going to announce a reduction in research and progression, c/o Bush.

If you think Bush was bad for NASA, just wait if Obama is elected President. He wants to slash the heck out of NASA.

THE BRIGHTEST exploding star, or supernova, ever seen has been recorded by scientists from US space agency NASA, who report a similar event may be ready to go off in our own galaxy.
Astronomers say the finding of the supernova — known as SN 2006gy — suggests that violent explosions of massive stars were common in the early universe.
"This was a truly monstrous explosion, a hundred times more energetic than a typical supernova," said the University of California's Nathan Smith, who led a team of astronomers on the project.
