Some more low mass exoplanets, some near HZ

Post #1by ajtribick » 18.08.2011, 18:15

Turns out there are planetary systems around HD 20794 (82 Eridani), HD 85512 and HD 192310.

HD 85512 b may potentially be interesting in terms of habitability, though it is only slightly less strongly-irradiated than Venus is so I'm not holding my breath...

Well there's been a lot of new planets recently. Annoyingly they don't quote T or ? in their orbital elements tables though, this will limit the representation of these systems in Celestia. :(

Oh and yet another nail in the coffin for Gliese 581 f and g... back to four planets for now.
