The lightest exo-planet ever discovered, only 1.9 Earth masses, has been detected by HARPS. Moreover, a recomputation of the orbits of the planetary system, of which by now we have detected 4 planets, reveals that the outermost planet might lie inside the habitable zone, where liquid water might exist on its surface.
