Instead, they say a third planet may be sandwiched between the two – and it may be far more Earth-like than Gliese 832c.By studying the electromagnetic spectrum of GJ 832, researchers have been attempting to find out what orbits the red dwarf.
But, since its existence was first proposed, United States National Aeronautic Space Agency (NASA) has warned that claims of a new planet lurking in our solar system are premature.
The researchers are analysing data from the Cassini spacecraft in a way that considers multiple orbits as opposed to just one, Payne explained to New Scientist.
