Not one, but three planets found in Gliese 667C’s habitable zone

Scientists using data from the ESO’s

HARPS (High Accuracy Radial velocity

Planet Searcher) have discovered not one, but three super-Earths orbiting in the stellar habitable zone of Gliese

667C. It’s a record-breaker as far as finding planets where liquid water might exist is concerned, and it means that this habitable zone is as populated with planets as it can get.

“We knew that the star had three planets from previous studies, so we wanted to see whether there were any more,” said Mikko Tuomi, one of the astronomers from

Social housing
