Slashdot: Alpha Centauri Turns Out Not To Have a Planet After All. At Least, Not Yet

“So, Alpha Centauri… don’t you think it’s time you had a planet? I mean, you’re not getting any younger — what are you, somewhere between four-and-a-half to seven billion years old now? I’m not telling you how to live your stellar life, I just want you to think about it.”

Please respect Alpha Centauri’s life-choices.

Also, one more thing! I just learned (from Wikipedia) that another name for Alpha Centauri is RIGIL KENT. Why the hell aren’t we using that name all the time? Rigil Kent is way more awesome than Alpha Centauri, yeah?
