  • Schoolgirl found hanging after 'rare allergy to wi-fi made her life a misery'

    Jenny's parents are now campaigning to have wi-fi banned in all schools.

    When NASA's Kepler Telescope revealed that it had found what could have been an 'alien megastructure' orbiting a distant star, it didn't take long for both the wider community and the public to embrace what could have been our first glimpse at alien life. Sadly, and as is usually the case, Kepler's scientists have been hard at work trying to ruin all our dreams and have come up with a more likely alternative.
