GJ667Cc – earth 2.0?

A team of astonomers under direction of Guillem Anglada-Escudé has reported a new exoplanet called GJ667Cc. It circles a red dwarf with a period of 28.15 days and a minimum mass of 4.5 times the mass of earth. It lies in the habitable zone and is therefore a good candidate to support life. Its distance from earth is 22 lightyears.
