Updated Trends: New Planet Gliese 581 g Found In The Habitable Zone
Astronomers of the University of California have found a planet called Gliese 581 g in the Habitable Zone. The new planet was found during a Lick-Carnegie survey of the exoplanet system of the Gliese 581. Gliese 581 g is revolving around a red dwarf, and is at a subtle distance from the star. The new planet is approximately 20 light years away from earth.
It has been reported that the new planet has mostly rocky landscape, and has sufficient gravitational pull to maintain an atmosphere. According to a scientist at the University of California, the planet does have enough gravitational pull, that a human being can walk in a proper manner. It is also assumed that there could be a possibility that life is existing on this planet.
The Scientist also added that, if there is a probability that life can evolve in any possible and sustainable habitat in the universe, then there could be a 100% chance that there life could be striving on this planet. The temperature on this planet could be ranging from -31 to -12 degrees.
