Object orbiting around Proxima Centauri
The British science magazine NEW SCIENTIST reports in the January 31
issue that the Hubble
Space Telescope has imaged an object which is apparently orbiting around Proxima Centauri, the closest star to the Sun.
This object is speculated to be either a brown dwarf or a planet "at least
ten times the size of Jupiter."
