Scientists discover 60 new extrasolar planets

LNMRadio

The significant haul of new worlds includes a potentially habitable ‘super-Earth’ with a rocky surface.
Based on observations made of 1,600 stars over a 20-year period, the new study has added a further 60 confirmed exoplanets as well as another 54 potential exoplanets to the archives.

One of these, Gliese 411-b, is of particular interest because it is believed to be a terrestrial rocky planet like the Earth and may be a good place to look for signs of extraterrestrial life in the future
