Centauri Dreaming

More planet-hunting news! The ‘Centauri Dreams’ blog examines the content of a soon-to-be-published paper that claims the odds for habitable planets in the Centauri star system are much better than thought before. This is thanks to evidence that the dwarf third star in the system may be ideally placed to lob comets and other organic volatiles right into the habitable planetary orbits. This is good news, but don’t go laying down money for land deals just yet.
