Whilst NASA have made great discoveries with the Hubble Telescope, most of us have been unable to see the images in a form that we recognize or understand
However, maybe that will all change now with the use of APEP (Advanced Photographic Extraction Process), a technique that can extract the smallest details from an existing image and enlarge it.
Maybe, in the very near future, we will be able to observe sufficient detail on other planets (not in our Solar System), that will determine whether life exists there or not. If we can "zoom in" close enough to see structures, we will also be
also they should zoom in on pluto. I believe they have not sent a prob there yet.

why don't they zoom in on the moon landing sites...

Warp Drive Engine Would Travel Faster Than Light
Eric Bland, Discovery News
July 28, 2008 -- It is possible to travel faster than light. You just wouldn't travel faster than light.
Seems strange, but by manipulating extra dimensions with astronomical amounts of energy, two Baylor University physicists have outlined how a faster-than-light engine, or warp drive, could be created that would bend but not break the laws of physics.
"We think we can create an effective warp drive, based on general relatively and string theory," said Gerald Cleaver, coauthor of the paper that recently appeared on the preprint server ArXiv.org
The warp engine is based on a design first proposed in1994 by Michael Alcubierre. The Alcubierre drive, as it's known, involves expanding the fabric of space behind a ship into a bubble and shrinking space-time in front of the ship. The ship would rest in between the expanding and shrinking space-time, essentially surfing down the side of the bubble.
The tricky part is that the ship wouldn't actually move; space itself would move underneath the stationary spacecraft. A beam of light next to the ship would still zoom away, same as it always does, but a beam of light far from the ship would be left behind.

The fact that this technology is now availabe is not surprising, it was only a matter of time before scientist were able to do this. One of the leading Optical Scientists resently said, "information in a photo may be infinitly small is not lost and can be retreived". I have read where ths scientist, Ron Stewart has Mars photos of the serface he is about to release showng detailed images of structures on the surface. After reading the article it maks sense that scientist should have been developing technology like this a long time ago.......
As one of the persons who is involved with PPP let me explain how the process works in the simple terms. Imagine you take a photo of an object and your photo is 4x6 than that photo contains about 600 digital pixels. What we did with Christine's photo was enlarge the photo to nearly 45,000 digital pixels which made the photo the size of a outdoor movie screen 50feetx50feet, with our special equipment.....
