Epsilon Eridani news

Interesting findings surrounding the Epsilon Eridani star system:

No space stations as yet, oh well.

That is quite fascinating, and what a nod to B5 in a science article.

Re: Epsilon Eridani news

WOW! Shot a chill right up my spine reading that. I am telling you Babylon 5 fans are finally starting to influence society. Jan knows what I am talking about.

But yes that is incredible. I LOVE that someone actually took the time to drop the B5 reference in.

Thank you Andrew Griffin.

Re: Epsilon Eridani news

It's always nice to see a B5 reference dropped, especially when you're not expecting it!

Well, yea. When the Great Maker points you to a star, you pay attention.

Re: Epsilon Eridani news

Not surprised at the B5 reference, honestly. A lot of science writers are probably science fiction fans.
