Ross 128b

I feel stupid for forgetting about this one, but a recent article has jogged my memory.

Ross 128 probably is more iron-rich than Sol, so Ross 128b probably has a large iron core- that means it will be a little smaller and denser than Four's estimate, with a gravity a bit higher- say about 1.15 gees. It is unlikely to be a carbon world.

I think I can edit this together into a suitable article in the near future, unless I forget again.

Article now up. I've added a few details from the old article to maintain consistency.

Interesting article, Steve, and cool art.

And it's interesting to see science fiction have to scramble to keep up with real world discoveries of exoplanets. I spent decades figuring we'd only find a few in my life time, if any.
