'Super-Earth' is spotted just 14 light years away: Wolf 1061c is the closest 'habitable' planet outside our solar system ever found
Wolf 1061c has more than four times the mass of the Earth
It is the closest potentially habitable planet found outside our solar system
Planet sits within zone where it might be possible for water and life to exist
It joins an elite number of relatively nearby planets that could support life
More and more we are finding that stars dimmer than ours could very easily support life. And many more of those type of stars than stars that are
larger than our own.
