An international team of scientists reported February 3, 2012, that they have identified a potentially habitable super-Earth. They found evidence of at least one planet orbiting a star, called GJ 667C, about 22 light years from Earth. The super-Earth is located in the zone that is neither too hot nor too cold for liquid water on a metal poor M dwarf in a triple star system. The team also suggested that this finding supports evidence that such worlds should be ubiquitous in the Galaxy. The team concluded this identity after using new measures to analyze data collected over four years. Read More.
