EXOPLANET NEWS: ASTRONOMERS HAVE FOUND VULCAN!

Astronomers have found a planet orbiting the star 40 Eridani A. The planet looks to be a super-Earth, bigger and more massive than Earth, but still possibly terrestrial (that is, a metal/rock body like Earth as opposed to a gas giant like Neptune or Jupiter).

Why is this a big deal? Because 40 Eridani A is, canonically, the star around which the planet Vulcan orbits. Yes, Vulcan: Spock’s homeworld in Star Trek!
