Jackpot! Over a Hundred Nearby Planets Discovered!

A 20-year survey has yielded over 100 planets in solar systems relatively close to our own. The study has found 60 new exoplanets, one of which is a ‘super-Earth,’ and evidence of 54 others. The super-Earth is Gliese 411b, a “hot super-Earth with a rock Surface.” Gliese 411b orbits Lalande 21185, a red dwarf that is the sixth-closest star and … Continue reading
