GJ 357

GJ 357 is a system 9.4 parsecs away that contains 3 known planets one of which, d, lies in the habitable zone. The host star is a cool, red, M star allowing GJ 357 d to sit just 0.2 AU from the star and remain temperate enough to potentially host life similar to Earth. I helped model the potential climates that GJ 357d could have that would make it was habitable while making these press images.
