Extrasolar Water Discovered

The Bush administration wants to make war on science. That's clearly because they're not the kind of people to be thrilled by news about the first planet with water discovered in another solar system.

The planet is a superhot gas giant, so no liquid water, but still. Chances are that if we find it once, it can be found again. It's a big galaxy and we haven't really been looking all that long.
