Hi brianok. Those three are already being discussed here (http://www.bautforum.com/astronomy/81222-keck-telescope-sees-three-planet-system.html). A fourth planet was found by Hubble and is being discussed here (http://www.bautforum.com/astronomy/58157-interesting-extrasolar-planet-discoveries-12.html#post1364765).

We're way ahead of you! :)
