There be a planet around Eps Eri

For a while the status of the planet orbiting Eps Eri has been questioned. The radial velocity curve was far from impressive but there was definetly something interesting there. Now, after observations with the Hubble Space Telescope it looks that finally the system will be confirmed to have a planet in it! This is good for me as my research concerns this planet (more at some point in the future, I am sure!). So the closest known extrasolar planet does appear to exist, yay!
