If this is real, they won’t name it Vulcan. That name is reserved for a planet that doesn’t exist

The reddit post embeds a video produced by Nature, quotes the entire abstract of the article, and links to the article and it’s abstract on the OUP website.

Okay, thank you, but I can't access Reddit while at work. Hence my request for an alternative source.

I feel like just posting a reddit url with no summary or commentary is rather poor etiquette in any case, regardless of any other accessibility issues.
The world is so exquisite with so much love and moral depth, that there is no reason to deceive ourselves with pretty stories for which there's little good evidence. Far better...is to look death in the eye and to be grateful every day for the brief but magnificent opportunity that life provides.

Thank you. I understand what is going on now.  ;D

But really, isn't it the case that most eligible stars have planetary systems? It's not really all that much of a surprise that there'd be a planet in that particular system is it?

Should the commentary actually be related to the url?

JK, yes, there was context in the thread, but still, this struck me as humorous...
