Astronomers find 60 new planets, including a 'super Earth'

Gliese 411 BA group of international researchers hit the planetary jackpot by spotting 60 new planets, including a “super Earth.”

The team also found evidence of 54 other planets, bringing the total of new exoplanets to over 100, according to a statement from the University of Hertfordshire in the United Kingdom, which participated in the study.

The “super Earth,” called Gliese 411b is described as a “hot super-Earth with a rocky surface.” The planet orbits a star  called Gliese 411, and is located in the fourth nearest star system to the Sun, according to a statement from the university.

Mikko Tuomi from the University of Hertfordshire’s Centre for Astrophysics said that when researchers look at the nearest stars, all of them “appear to have planets orbiting them.”
