Scientists Discover A New Planet
Scientists have discovered a new planet.
Professor Steven Vogt, a professor at the University of California has discovered a planet that is over 20 light years away.
The planet, called Gliese 581g, is believed to have the right conditions to support life.
Professor Vogt is completely sure that the planet does in fact support life.
The professor says that the life Gliese 581g supports may not be human. He says that the life may be something similar to bacteria or shower mold.
Scientists now believe there are many more planets like Gliese 581g in the universe.
“It’s pretty hard to stop life once you give it the right conditions,” said Vogt of the University of California at Santa Cruz.
