Will we here Imperial shuttle communications?

Ok. I’m stretching a little. But, from an article over at RedOrbit, the Kepler team believes that there is no reason that NASA’s latest planet hunter should not also be able to detect a planet’s moons. I really hope that Kepler finds a boatload of potentially habitable systems. With confirmation that there are other possibly life bearing worlds, a massive launch of new science and experiments could finally listen in on a galactic conversation. These are definitely exciting times!
