Fomalhaut, Rings, and Planetary Formation

The Hubble appears to have gotten some nice pictures of Fomalhaut, a young star about 25 light years away, that suggest strongly that there are planets forming around it. Better yet, they don't think that any of the planets could be larger than five Jupiter masses.

So if we can just wait a billion years or so, there might be some nice real estate there. Maybe.
