Our take: The first planet, confirmed by Planet Hunters citizen science website proves the site to be a valuable source for the astrological community. Tony Hoffman, from PC Magazine shares more about the new planet and the website:
"The Planet Hunters citizen science website proved its mettle in a big way yesterday with the announcement of its first confirmed planet discovery, which also happens to be the first planet to be found in a quadruple star system.
Like Kepler 16-B (aka "Tatooine"), the new world––dubbed Planet Hunters 1 or PH1––orbits a close binary star; a second pair of stars much farther away is also gravitationally bound to the system. The Planet Hunters team has submitted a paper detailing the find to the Astrophysical Journal, with citizen scientist volunteers Kian Jek and Robert Gagliano listed as co-authors."
