Granted, the planet is so far away and there's so much visual noise (even after filtering) that the image is a 3 pixel by 3 pixel red dot. The planet probably isn't even actually red, up close; red shift and all that.
But still! It's a photo! Of an exoplanet! And not an infrared photo or an x-ray photo or mathematically implied existence from a photo, but an actual honest-to-goodness visual image. Newspaper reporters are apparently disappointed, but I'm excited enough to be jumping up and down.
Also: Water ice on Mars! (From up close!) Caves on Mars! Old news for some of you, but wow.
