Re: Planet around Alpha Centauri - lets talk about it

Just FYI, Alpha Centauri A and B are fairly widely spaced, with the closest approach of B to A being about the distance of Uranus to the Sun, so planets at Earthlike distances from either could possibly be perfectly stable climatically.

Proxima Centauri is a 20th of a light year from the main pair, ergo no real influence.
