Discovered Planets Like Earth

The scientists claim that they discovered a new planet most like Earth and could place to live. A team of planet hunters have announced the discovery of Gliese 581g, a mass planets like the Earth orbiting the nearest star. The distance between the planet to its star is located in a safe zone, where water may exist in the planet's surface. "Our findings show a potentially habitable planet, the fact that we are able to detect the planet quickly and could have planets like this there are many in the universe" said Professor Steven Vogt of the University of California.

Already confirmed, that this planet similar to earth and has a strong potential for the habitable. This discovery could be a trigger to find planets similar. The invention is based on 11 years of research at the WM Keck Observatory in Hawaii."Additional techniques combined with a telescope to continue the investigation of exoplanets," said Prof. Vogt and Paul Butler of the Carnegie Institution in Washington.

In the Astrophysical Journal written discovery of two new planets around the star Gliese 581. The most interesting of the two new planets is Gliese 581g, with a mass of three to four times larger than Earth and orbit time of under 37 days. The masses of these planets may indicate that Gliese 581 is a rocky planet with a rough surface and has a gravity, according to Professor Vogt. Planet Gliese 581g is located in the constellation Libra with a distance of 20 light-years from Earth.
