Might Gliese 163 Super-Earth be habitable?

Welcome! "Alien Life" tracks the latest discoveries and thoughts in the various elements of the famous Drake Equation. Here's today's news:
g Abodes - A new Super-Earth planet has been found in the stellar habitable zone of the red dwarf star Gliese 163. The planet receives more light from its parent star than Earth from the Sun, but it still might be habitable for life as we know it. See article.
g Intelligence - You already know it's hard to balance your checkbook while simultaneously reflecting on your past. Now, investigators at the Stanford University School of Medicine - having done the equivalent of wire-tapping a hard-to-reach region of the brain - can tell us how this impasse arises. See article.
g Cosmicus - NASA's Radiation Belt Storm Probes mission has launched from Cape Canaveral. The twin-spacecraft mission will study the radiation belts, providing important information about the connections between the Sun and the Earth. See article.
