Extrasolar Planets

Astronomers believe this Hubble Space Telescope image of the star Fomalhaut includes the first extrasolar planet ever detected directly in visible light (insets). A separate near-infrared image collected with the Keck and Gemini telescopes in Hawaii, also released last week, directly revealed what are believed to be three more planets in the extrasolar system surrounding the star HR8799, 140 light-years distant.

CORRESPONDENCE

ATA CHIEF IS OUT OF TOUCH I had a good laugh while reading the commentary by Air Transport Assn. CEO James C. May (AW&ST Oct. 27, p. 51). He keeps telling us we have to completely deregulate the airlines, it is misplaced nostalgia that is driving a new call for reregulation, it is only because of deregulation that we have loyalty programs, calls for reregulation fail to recognize the realities of the global aviation marketplace, and on and on.
