Alien life on Gliese 581?

Gliese 581, lies in the constellation of Libra and is among the 100 closest stars to the Sun. Giliese 581 B was only discovered two years ago and is a planet much like Neptune, then we have Gliese 581 D but the excitement is about a new planet, as of yet has no name but has being designated Gliese 581 C.

This new planet which is 20.5 light years away, orbits a region with the right temperature to allow liquid water on its surface. For more information, visit here.
