The first part of this video shows a zoom into the Vela Constellation (The Sail) until the Sun-like star HD 85512 appears. From then on an artist's impression of exoplanet HD 85512b shows this super-Earth orbiting its Sun. This planet is only one of sixteen super-Earths discovered by the HARPS instrument on the 3.6-metre telescope at ESO's La Silla Observatory, and one of more than 50 new exoplanets discovered during 2011. HD 85512 b is about 3.6 times as massive as the Earth, and may harbor life, since it is located at the edge of the habitable zone around the star, where liquid water can exist. All images made by the European Southern Observatory (ESO), M. Kornmesser, A. Fujii and Digitized Sky Survey 2. Background music by RENALD DE MATREXASSE - "Vingt-deux Janvier" from the album "Ephémérides-Janvier"; released by its author under an Attribution, Non-commercial, Share-alike, 3.0 Creative Commons License.
