Gliese 581 d (pronunced “gleeze”) is a super-earth in the habitable zone around the star Gliese 581, in the constellation Libra (20 light years from Earth). It was discovered in 2009, and in 2011, scientists came up with a model that could explain atmosphere and liquid water on the planet. In other words, it’s a planet outside our Solar System that could support life.
My latest song Skies of Gliese 581 d features a spacey, electronic feel and uses some new components from the just-released Reason 6. As with all my music, it’s a free download and CC-BY-SA licensed, so you can remix and reuse it.
