The Search for a Habitable Planet: Gliese 667Cc

As far as extra-solar planet hunting goes, we"ve found quite a few of them. Most, however, haven"t been remotely discussed as being potential candidates to host life as we know it. In fact, hardly any have been discovered inside the Goldilocks region of their star (the area where liquid water could theoretically exist). However, scientists know of one planet that could potentially host life. It has been dubbed the "holy grail" of extrasolar planets, and it"s only 22 light-years away!
