    Default three planets in the Hyades

    It's a missed opportunity. They should have set the announcement to the soundtrack from

    It could work!

    Default Re: three planets in the Hyades

    Why have one planet when you can have three? The orbital periods are very short, meaning that they are probably too close to the star to support life (big surprise) plus they are very young and would be unlikely therefore to harbor it.
