We Have Found an 'Habitable' Planet!

Gliese 581dIt’s warm, it’s wet, and it’s a mere 300,000 year trip away!

Meet Gliese 581d, a world twice the size of Earth. It orbits the red dwarf star Gliese a mere (on an astronomical scale) 20 light years away.

While this is not the first discovery of Gliese 581d, it had been written off previously as a candidate for life. New reports of the system have changed that opinion.

Cosmos Magazine has all the skinny here and here as does Dvice.

  2. THEY'VE FOUND A BUNCH OF NEW PLANETS WITHOUT STARS. THIS INCREASES THE NUMBER OF SUSPECTED PLANETS DRAMATICALLY.
