Major Extrasolar Planet Announcement

Discovery of small, rocky, extrasolar world suggests such planets may be common, NSF

"Using a relatively new planet-hunting technique that can spot worlds one-tenth the mass of our own, researchers have discovered a potentially rocky, icy body that may be the smallest planet yet found orbiting a star outside our solar system."

Major Scientific Discovery on Extrasolar Planets / ESA TV News

"The next transmission of the ESA TV Service will be: 25-Jan-06 16:00 - 16:15 GMT. The scientific journal NATURE will publish in its issue dated 26 January 2006, a major paper on a discovery addressing extra-solar planets."

Editor's note: If you go to the link ESA has posted in this press release, the same information contained in this press release is available for anyone - anywhere - to read. As such, it is rather confusing for ESA to repeatedly use the word "EMBARGO" in connection with this press release - one which reveals almost nothing - in the first place.
