    Earth-like planets around Alpha Centauri?

    Posted by ChevScience on June 12, 2011

    Alpha Centauri, the closest star system to our Solar System, should harbour detectable Earth-like planets, according to a new study by astronomers at the University of Santa Cruz.

    I love these stories. The closest star to ours with planets having habitable zones. See the two bright stars? the pointers in the Southern Cross. You could be looking at aliens. For real!!
