Exoplanet found 'just next door'

Exoplanet found 'just next door' | emergent-complexity | Scoop.it

Astronomers spot the nearest known planet outside our Solar System, circling a star in the Alpha Centauri system just four light-years away. The planet has at minimum the same mass as Earth, but circles its star far closer than Mercury orbits our Sun.

It is therefore outside the "habitable zone" denoting the possibility of life, as the researchers report in Nature. Nice summary article from the BBC Science team, click the image or the title to learn more.

Not bad, but how did they manage to write this article without mentioning the Human Connectome project (http://www.humanconnectomeproject.org/)? An odd omission.
