    In my opinion this is yet another badly written article. Mr. Williams refers to the primary star as a white dwarf with 1.7 times the mass of the Sun, which is way over the limit. That also is at odds with the artist's rendition which is consistent with a main sequence star of that mass alongside an M dwarf. In addition the writing about neutron star pulsars in the opening paragraphs made it confusing as to just what he was writing about. To find better articles, just browse for HD 74423, the catalogue number of the star.

    Once again, does Fraser ever read these articles?
