HD 85512 b is an extrasolar planet[1][2] orbiting the star HD 85512 approximately 36 light-years away in the constellation of Vela. The planet was discovered by the scientists at University of Geneva, Switzerland,[4][5] led by the Swiss astronomer St├ęphane Udry[6] of the GTO program of High Accuracy Radial velocity Planet Searcher (HARPS), a high-precision echelle spectrograph installed on ESO's 3.6 m telescope at La Silla Observatory in Chile.[3] HD 85512 b is one of the smallest exo-planets discovered to be in the habitable zone.[2] HD 85512 b is considered to be the best candidate for habitability as of August 25, 2011.[2][4]

Good post mobetta, it seems new and exciting planets are emerging every day!

Still, 36 light years is still a long way to go.
