Exoplanetary Scratchpad

[SysBP Img]

The first sun-like star in the Galactic Bulge (25,000ly away) found to have a planet in its habitable zone. The planet is 5 times Jupiter's mass and could potentially have habitable moons, which would need to have strong greenhouse cover to have liquid water since they're between the outer edge of the HZ and the snow line. Detected via microlensing.
