HARPS System

EFE is only 42 light years away from our planet. It could be a stable atmosphere and water, and is part of a system of six worlds that revolves around the star HD 40307. Its mass is at least seven times that of Earth and it is likely that you rotate on its own axis while it orbits around its star. An international team of astronomers has discovered a new potentially habitable Super-Earth only 42 light years away from our planet, according to a study to be published in Astronomy & Astrophysics. The Exoplanet, situated in a habitable neither too cold nor too hot area in which there could be a stable atmosphere, and water is part of a system of six worlds that revolves around the star HD 40307. The astronomers believed that that system was composed of only three planets too close to its Sun for host life, but discovered three more, including this super-Earth, thanks to more precise techniques of analysis of the data collected by the HARPS spectrograph the southern European Observatory (ESO) at La Silla, Chile. According to the study, whose principal authors are University Guillem Anglada-Escude German Gottingen and Mikko Tuomi, the British University of Hertfordshire, the most interesting of the three new planets is that lies farther from its star, similar to the existing distance between the Earth and the Sun. Its mass is at least seven times that of Earth and it is likely that you rotate on its own axis while it orbits around its star, so you could have a day and night cycle as well as our planet. According to Anglada-Escude, the star HD 40307 is a perfectly tranquil star, so there is no reason why this planet may not have a climate similar to the Earth.
