Super Earth Exoplanets More Earth Like Than Thought. The planet GJ 1214b, shown here in an artist’s conception with two hypothetical moons, orbits a “red dwarf” star 40 light-years from Earth. GJ 1214b has a radius of about 2.7 times that of Earth and is about 6.5 times as massive, putting it squarely into the class of exoplanets known as Super-Earths. Image credit: CfA/David Aguilar.

'Super-Earth' Alien Planet Spotted by Ground-Based Telescope, a First A ground-based telescope in Spain was able to identify a super-Earth orbiting a sunlike star. With the assistance of telescopes on the ground, astronomers could move faster in the search for habitable planets around other stars.

Super-Earths: New Planets Found! - Astronomers working at the European Southern Observatory (ESO) in Chile have discovered seven planets orbiting the star Gliese 667C.    Two exoplanets have been discovered in the star's habitable zone, which has just the right range of distance where liquid water can exist on a planet's surface.
