Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson went on a camping trip. They pitched their tent under the stars and went to sleep.

In the middle of the night Holmes wakes Watson up: "Watson, look up at the stars, and tell me what you deduce."

Watson: "I see millions of stars and even if a few of those have planets, it's quite likely there are some planets like Earth, and if there are a few planets like Earth out there, there might also be life."

Holmes: "Watson, you idiot; somebody's stolen our tent!"

Q: Where did the astronauts park their space ship?
A: At a parking meteor!
