Default Water, Weird Clouds Found on Alien 'Warm Neptune'

Astronomers have spotted water vapor and evidence of exotic clouds in the atmosphere of an alien planet known as HAT-P-26b.

The researchers also determined that HAT-P-26b's atmosphere is dominated by hydrogen and helium to a much greater degree than that of Neptune or Uranus, the alien world's closest counterparts in our own solar system in terms of mass.
I think it's interesting that we've become able to tell so much about far-distant planets.

Maybe that is where NASA's space plane was during its 718 days of being...gone.
