New super-Earth found in habitable zone
A super-Earth planet has been found in the habitable zone of the star GJ 667C but is it habitable. A super-Earth planet has been found in the habitable zoneof the star GJ 667C once again promoting hopes that it is a habitable world but is it really habitable. It orbits the smaller of triple star system being classified as red dwarf star. Called GJ 667Cc this planet orbits slightly closer to ir star than Mercury does to our sun, however the star is so cool that it's in the outer portion of the habitable zone getting about 90% of the energy that the Earth gets from the sun.
This planets is so close to their stars tend to be tidal locked with one side always facing the star meaning that one side is backed while the other freezes. While there would a zone in between that would have the right temperature for liquid water, that area would also have extremely high winds making the area hostile to life. The point is that claims that this planet could be habitable are greatly exaserated.
