Potentially habitable Earth-like planet discovered; May have similar temperatures to our planet

A potentially habitable Earth-like planet that is only 16 light years away has been discovered. The “super-Earth” planet, GJ 832 c, takes 16 days to orbit its red-dwarf star, GJ 832, and has a mass at least five times that of Earth. It receives about the same average stellar energy as Earth does and may have similar temperatures to our planet. These characteristics put it among the top three most Earth-like planets.
