Gliese 667C

Well. If we ever get an FTL probe, we need to send it to Gliese 667C stat. Seriously, what a crowded (and beautiful) system.

Can you imagine living on a world where there are habitable neighbors closer to you than Mars is to us?

THREE planets in a tight habitable zone around a cool star. Short years and rapid seasons...and neighbors in the sky. It's not impossible that all three worlds could evolve different sentient species. They could visit each other with the technology we have now. Maybe they would fight. Maybe they would work together. Most likely one would be followed by the other.

Besides. Really. How could one resist taking a proper look?
