Dr Peter Wheatley wins Time Magazine and CNN accolade

Dr Peter Wheatley, Department of Physics, and colleagues in the WASP (Wide Angle Search for Planets) consortium were recently rated in the top 10 science discoveries of 2007 by Time Magazine and CNN for their discovery of three extrasolar planets. The three planets are about the size of Jupiter but are too hot to support life because they orbit too close to their sun.
