Newly Discovered Planet Nearby: A fly-through of the Alpha Centauri system
Science and science fiction continue to converge. The Europeans have discovered a small, roughly earth-sized planet circling close to Alpha Centauri B, one of the stars in a two star system. It is only an astronomical stones throw away at 4.5 light years. Astronomers hope that with the finding of one small planet around this star, other, more habitable planets may be found there as well. Here's hoping and waiting to see what else turns up. Now if we could only develop warp drive or a jump gate or hyperspace engines, we'd be in business.
