Potentially inhabited super earth

A team of astrophysicists from Switzerland, Spain and Italy discovered a potentially inhabited super earth in the constellation of the Dragon.

The planet was found using the spectrograph HARPS-N, installed at the observatory Roque de los Muchachos in the Spanish Canary Islands.

It is reported that the super earth is in the habitable zone of the red dwarf Gliese 625. The mass of the celestial body is 2.8 times greater than the mass of the Earth, and the period of revolution around the star is 14.6 days. The surface temperature is favorable for carbon life forms and does not exceed 350 kelvin (76.85 degrees Celsius).

In the future, scientists are going to get information about the composition of the atmosphere of the exoplanet found and to find out whether there is liquid water on it.
