Re: Planet around Alpha Centauri - lets talk about it

All very good and true points... in a way science fiction has gives us many delusions. In the end I find when it comes to these matters real life science trumps popular media. Doubtful we'll ever have a "take me to your leader moment", but who says planetary spectral analysis isn't as interesting. To see how a planet developed differently to ours would be engrossing.
