Super-Earths are bigger and more habitable than Earth, and astronomers are discovering more of the billions they think exist

Super-Earths are bigger and more habitable than Earth, and astronomers are discovering more of the billions they think exist

Astronomers now regularly discover planets orbiting stars outside the solar system – they are called exoplanets. But in the summer of 2022, teams working on NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey satellite found a few particularly interesting planets orbiting in the habitable zones of their parent stars. A planet is 30% larger than Earth and orbits its …
