'Super-earth' near red dwarf Gliese 163c top contender for supporting life
Astronomers found it using the European Southern Observatory HARPS telescope (or High Accuracy Radial Velocity Planet Searcher)

A newly-discovered 'super-earth' at the edge of a star's habitable zone could be a top contender for an alien planet beyond ours which supports life.

Gliese 163c, which lies beside a red dwarf star, has a mass of 6.9 times that of Earth and an orbital period of 26 days.

Researchers believe the new-found world's location means it could be a super-earth where liquid water could exist.
