Last year, I wrote an SF story about a planet in the Gliese (gleesh) system, first identified in the early 2000s as an extra solar planetary system. Today, the first potentially inhabitable extra solar planet was identified - in the GLIESE system! So, my story, 'Journey Home', didn't cut the mustard but heck, there's got to be points for being on the astronomical button!

Science is what you do when the funding panel thinks you know what you're doing. Fiction is the same only without the funding.
