NASA confirmed an incredible discovery Tuesday — that an amateur radio astronomer, on the hunt for a classified government satellite, stumbled upon signals from a spacecraft that had been thought lost 12 years earlier, raising hope that NASA can resurrect a mission that changed our understanding of the “invisible ocean” around the Earth.

How cool is this? I think I worked on PowerPoint presentations and sat in meetings on Tuesday. Peace & Love to my employer, coworkers, and customers but I would much rather have discovered a lost spacecraft.

“Too cool” is the correct answer to “how cool is this?”, by the way.
