Seven Planets

The Geneva Team showed some of their new results, including a remarkable system with seven planets, the smallest of which has a mass of only 1.5 Earth Masses.


The name of the star was redacted, but based on the properties and other clues in the talk, my guess is that the parent star will turn out to be Henry Draper Catalog star #101XX, or possibly Henry Draper Catalog star #1475XX.
