Van de Kamp's Phantom Worlds — the Case of the Disappearing Exoplanets
It seemed sensational — two planets outside our solar system, in the second nearest star system to ours.
It sparked talks of interstellar missions and more.
But behind the scenes, there was so much more going on with the planets Peter van de Kamp proposed to the world.
