Astronomers using ESO's leading exoplanet hunter HARPS have today announced more than fifty newly discovered planets around other stars. Among these are many rocky planets not much heavier than the Earth. One of them in particular seems to orbit in the habitable zone around its star. This ESOcast we look at how astronomers discover these distant worlds and what the future may hold for finding rocky worlds like the Earth that may support life. ________________________________________________________________ Cincuenta nuevos exoplanetas. Astrónomos anunciaron hoy el descubrimiento de más de cincuenta nuevos exoplanetas alrededor de otras estrellas, usando el reconocido buscador de planetas de ESO, HARPS. Entre ellos se encuentran varios planetas rocosos con masas un poco mayores a la de la Tierra. Uno de ellos estaría orbitando en la zona habitable alrededor de la estrella. En este ESOcast veremos cómo los astrónomos descubren estos mundos distantes y lo que el futuro nos depara sobre la búsqueda de planetas rocosos similares a la Tierra que pueden albergar la vida. ________________________________________________________________ Visual design and editing: Martin Kornmesser and Luis Calçada.
