it's about an Earth-sized planet that's been found circling Alpha Centauri B.

the stored is embargoed 'til tomorrow but www.universetoday.com has jumped the gun -- I know Fraser wrote an article some time back about why they publish these stories in advance but can't remember where the original comments are.

Thanks, guys.

Exciting discovery and more evidence that stars with planets are likely to be the norm.
