1. Nice. But, donning my grammar-police hat,

since this planet's sun, the red dwarf star K2-18, is about 111 light-years away, should the BBC not write in the past tense? The planet had water 111 years ago.

And the same principle should apply, I say, to everything we observe near or far away in this galaxy and in the universe: we are lookibg back in time.
