For a few decades now, we have been studying the StudyStar system in our region of the Milky Way, and we have explored the in-depth process of many exoplanets. Particular interest is paid towards Earth-sized planets orbiting within the habitable zone of their star, which is within the middle band of orbital distances, within which liquid water may exist on the surface of the water , A range that is heavy on the size and temperature of the star. We now know that many of the possible worlds that inhabit our cosmic neighborhood harbor are star systemines, and this is a fantasy. Can these worlds destroy lives already, affecting intelligent life? Of course we can only speculate for now, but in the meantime we will keep learning about these systems.
Let us now have a look at one such system, which is called Gliese 667. It is a triple-star system, just as we learned about the Alpha Centauri system, but it is a bit far away, which is about 23 light years away from Earth from SouthConstellvale Scorpius. . Gliese 667A and B are about 13 celestials, forming a binary system, and they are both similar to our Sun, the main sequence stars with about 70% of the Sun’s mass. However, they are very low in brightness, around 13% for A and 5% for B. Then, gravitationally bound to this first pair at a distance of 230 astronomical units, we find the Gliese 667C. It is a red dwarf star, only 30% of the sun’s mass of flour and more than 1% brighter. This star is the most interesting of the Trayodashab of his planets. We believe that there may be up to seven of them, two of which have been confirmed, and one of which is considered quite Earth-like. Those confirmed are called 667 Cb and 667 Cc, while d through h may also be present. All the planets that exist, both confirmed and unconfirmed, are very close to their star, as we can see here that the orbit of our innermost Mercury planet is shown for comparison. For confirmed planets, 667 Cb is a mass one, with at least 6 Earth masses and potentially up to 12. This one is too close to its star, tocolette to be habitable. 667 C is a small, slightly under 4 Earth mass, qualifying it as super-Earth, forming around its star once every 28 Earth days.
This planet inhabited zone resides in its star, which receives about 90% of the Earth’s light, and allows potentially liquid water on its surface. Like other planets orbiting such an adjacent star, it is likely to close happily, one face always toward its star, which reduces habit, as one side will be too hot and the other side too cold.
But if the atmosphere is thick enough it can allow enough heat to be moved farther away, and is also likely to acclimatise to the terminator line separating the day and night parts of the planet, where the endless twilight Can be the basis. Planets like Gliese 667 Cc inspire us to continue exploring other Earth-like, potentially habitable worlds. Our fascination with these worlds is a carefree expression of our desire to walk over them one day, and tap into the seemingly infinite range of our galaxy. What a change it would be, to leave the cradle of cosmic infancy that is our little planet, and enter the adventure of an interstellar adolescent. Will we travel to these worlds and other people, and can we find if we do? Only time will tell.
