Yep Steve very sad but I guess all the old spcies are getting on eh? Buzz Aldrin in our news just recently having to be got out of Antarctica Buzz Aldrin Leaves New Zealand Hospital After South Pole Scare - NBC News

Yes they are John, yea, I heard about Buzz being evacted out of wayyy down under. Altitude sickness can be serious for any age, especially for Buzz at 86.

The weather for Amundsen-Scott (2835m) Station they're pretty high at 2835m (9301.181 feet) look at that 975pressure.
That would make a pretty good coastal storm for us.

I didn't realize that before!
Axis Tilt is Critical for Life
So all those planets outside of our solar system not only need to be the right distance from their sun but need an appropriate rotational tilt to support our form of life. I don't think we can determine rotational tilt of distant planets. Earth's tilt appears optimal for life.

Yes mate it was explained in the documentary and I think it had something to do with the way the seasons are set and yes if the planet has a 90 degree "list" facing the sun it probably does mean it will not hold life.

That is a nice link too and I saw just the other week another program telling us the moon is moving away from us I think it was around 3cm per year.

The axial tilt of the Earth has been known for a surprisingly long time. The first reasonably accurate measurements were made in China and India. The first (that we know of) was made in 1100 B.C. (over 3000 years ago!) by Chou Li. The next set of measurements came from greek geographers about 750 years later...

....The paths of the planets was carefully observed by Tycho Brahe in the late 1500s. Following Brahe's death in 1601, Johannes Kepler used the data to develop a set of laws that govern the way the planets move around the Sun (he proposed them in 1609).
These laws, (creatively) called Kepler's Laws, still hold today. Combining Brahe's observations and Kepler's laws of planetary motion, we can infer the axial tilt. Brahe's calculations are probably the first modern, western measurements of the tilt of Earth's axis...

Source: Who (and when) discovered that the earth's axis is on a 23 degree tilt? (Intermediate)
Earth's axial tilt was the first to be determined, the other planets of the solar system took longer because it took longer to make the observations to determine the tilt.

So it follows that it will take longer to make observations of "distant planets" to determine each of their characteristics. There have already been findings of axial tilt for some exoplanets, look under the Inc. (Deg.) column of the chart here: List of exoplanets - Wikipedia

The Hubble Deep Field pictures were not taken with just one snap, but over a period of 10days for HDF and 56 for HUDF

It appears you can determine the tilt of exoplanets.
