Three Habitable Planets Found

Three possible habitable planets recently showed up on the galactic radar in the past week. Guillem Anglada-Escudé of the University of Göttingen in Germany indicated that they have seen the signals before but they may have been hidden in other data (Fox News, 2013). Using multiple data measurements the researchers were able to identify the stars and their nature.  The solar system called Gleise 667C is much like our current solar system with 7 planets of which three are believed to be Super Earths. This means that they have water like Earth but is much larger. The ability of humans to live on such planets or whether they already contain life is unknown. However, someday out there in infinite space will be a planet we may be able to colonize.  The solar system is also 22 light years away from us. This means that it is closer to use than originally believed. Many scientists have been using high powered telescopes to watch plants from further systems. Having habitable plane
