"A team of scientists at the University of California, Santa Cruz and the Carnegie Institution of Washington announced their discovery of a new planet on Wednesday.

The planet, called Gliese 581g, orbits a red dwarf star and is believed to be about three times the size of earth. Scientists say it's located about 20 light-years from Earth in the Libra constellation."
