Sharpest exoplanet image yet?

Figure 2. Gliese 832 c is the first exoplanet imaged by the Asteroid Belt Astronomical Telescope. This image, with a resolution of 10 meters, was released last month by ABAT, after the telescope’s construction was 1% completed. (Courtesy of Laura Kim.)

What's the Asteroid Belt Astronomical Telescope? Who is Laura Kim?

I'm beginning to think that you are searching a spoof site.

If you believe this is a real picture of an exoplanet I have a bridge to sell you.

The ABAT (and Laura Kim) is from an essay by Robert Austin in which he imagines certain aspects of physics in 100 years' time. For further information and a link to the essay, click on the above image.

Yes, indeed. Pity. That net idea wasn't half bad.

Just to make you feel better, Gliese 832c is a real exoplanet, but the image on wikipedia is an artist's impression
