Just a while ago, when I've got that news my heart started to beat faster:

http://www.universetoday.com/2008/09/15/first-picture-of-lik ely-planet-around-a-sun-like-star/

http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/badastronomy/2008/09/15/pl anet-imaged-around-a-sunlike-star/

It's not yet confirmed, but it's great news, it can be breakthrought in searching extrasolar planets.

What do you think about that?
