Tau Ceti's planets nearest around single, Sun-like star

The nearest single Sun-like star to the Earth hosts five planets
- one of which is in the "habitable zone" where liquid water can
exist, astronomers say...

It is increasingly clear that in existing data from radial
velocity measurements there may be evidence of many more
planets....

On Monday, Philip Gregory at the University of British Columbia
in Canada posted an as-yet unpublished paper to the arXiv
repository, claiming to have seen three planets in the habitable
zone of Gliese 667C, one of three stars in a triple-star system,
22 light-years away.

It is also clear that in almost every direction we look and in
every way that we look, there are planets around stars near and
far. The catalogue currently stands at 854 confirmed planets,
and is growing with every new publication
