A quadruple star system, Rigel (Beta Orionis) included two stars of interest: a blue-white supergiant (Rigel A) and a somewhat smaller blue-white giant (Rigel B), and the system supported a total of fourteen planets, six of which were inhabited. This remarkable number of Class M worlds was attributed to the star's extensive habitable zone, and to the Hakel radiation belt which surrounded the system's primary and shielded against the lethal radiation emitted by the B-Class supergiant.[1]
