I have yet to be shown a credible idea of how it might be possible for life to exist in any form other than carbon chains in a liquid water medium -- the notorious "life as we know it." People can speculate all they want but it seems unlikely in the extreme. That said, I also don't think the terminology adopted by those seeking life out there is accurate. "Super earth," meaning a rocky planet significantly larger than the earth, is, while technically correct, very misleading as it sound as though it might be something better than the earth.

Since Alpha Centauri is the closes star to our system, What would that make the Wolf System to ours?
