Wonder why this isn't at the NASA site?

#2 "The Kepler Telescope, launched in March, discovered the two new heavenly bodies, each circling its own star. Telescope chief scientist Bill Borucki of NASA said the objects are thousands of degrees hotter than the stars they circle. "

Wow. I had not seen that. That sounds like some new text books will be needed.

There are a bunch of links to the story on a google search, but nothing from the NASA or Kepler sites. Here is another story link from Discover.

It will be interesting to see what more comes out.
