Habitable Super-Earth Found In A Solar System 44 Light-Years Away

NRM: "Astronomers have discovered a new Super-Earth, which could have the same climate as our planet and have the ability to support life.

This international team of astronomers led by Mikko Tuomi, University of Hertfordshire, and Guillem Anglada-Escude, University of Goettingen, found the super-Earth in the habitable zone (called the Goldilocks Zone) of a nearby solar system, where conditions are just right to sustaine liquid water and an Earth-like climate."
