Did Ms. Porsche/Ferrari got the name from this star system? ^_^ :question: ^_^


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tau_Ceti

Quote:
Tau Ceti (τ Cet, τ Ceti) is a star in the constellation Cetus that is spectrally similar to the Sun, although it has only about 78% of the Sun's mass. At a distance of just under 12 light-years (3.7 parsecs) from the Solar System, it is a relatively nearby star, and is the closest solitary G-class star.[nb 2] The star appears stable, with little stellar variation, and is metal-deficient.

Observations have detected more than ten times as much dust surrounding Tau Ceti as is present in the Solar System. Since December 2012, there has been evidence of possibly five planets orbiting Tau Ceti, with two of these being potentially in the habitable zone.[9][10][11] Because of its debris disk, any planet orbiting Tau Ceti would face far more impact events than Earth. Despite this hurdle to habitability, its solar analog (Sun-like) characteristics have led to widespread interest in the star. Given its stability, similarity and relative proximity to the Sun, Tau Ceti is consistently listed as a target for the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI), and it appears in some science fiction literature.[12]

It can be seen with the unaided eye as a third-magnitude star.[nb 3] As seen from Tau Ceti, the Sun would be a third-magnitude star in the northern hemisphere constellation Boötes.

It's certainly possible. To be honest when I first heard of the Tau system Tau Ceti immediately came to mind.
