Most likely. If he tried it a few times and on another computer, or even better with a different ip address, I would guess that he would get different results.

I've noticed with travel sites that I'll get one rate on a flight/hotel then after searching around more and coming back to the desired one the price will have increased. At which point I call a friend, he searches and gets the original lower price.

This wonderful man was a professor of mine. In one of the many courses I took with him he walked us through how planets could be directly imaged with a space based interferometer. That was probably in '97. And I see by your link that the actual Terrestrial Planet Finder mission was postponed indefinitely in 2007. It looks like even if they were magically funded now that the earliest launch would be in 2015-16: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_Interferometry_Mission
