If you’re an astronomer, especially one who’s interested in finding new planets, Chile is apparently the place to be. Astronomers in Chile just announced the discovery of 50 new planets, one of them a possible super-Earth (no idea what makes it super). In fact, this same telescope in Chile is responsible for the discovery of the both the possible super-Earths. Talk about a cool place to work.
However, it looks like Europe will soon be the place to be, once the European Extremely Large Telescope (great name) if built. The new super-Earth will be a prime target for the telescope.
