Meeting a neighbour: the discovery of Barnard b
We recently announced the discovery of a candidate super- Earth planet around Barnard’s Star. The planet was found using nearly 800 radial velocities from seven different spectrographs in a large observational effort spanning over 20 years. Because of its proximity, at only 6 light years, Barnard b has potential for further characterisation, including direct imaging.

In this talk Ignasi Ribas (ICE-CSIC, IEEC) will present the details of the search and the analysis of the data, and will put this new planet in a broad context.
