"Designated Gliese 3942b, the newfound alien world is about 7.1 times as massive as the Earth.

Its host star, Gliese 3942 (also known as GJ 3942, HIP 79126 or 2MASS J16090309+5256379), is a low-mass star with spectral type M0, located in the constellation of Draco.

Gliese 3942b orbits the star once every 6.9 days at a distance of only 0.06 AU (astronomical units)…"

Poor candidate for life, though.

Too big, too hot, too close, too fast and too much radiation.

Yeah,doesn't sound like a fun place. Aren't many of the planets discovered so far of this type?

Initially yes, because it is much easier seeing the large planets. However, now there is a growing list of Earth sized planets becoming available. That's the good news. The bad news is that they circle Red Dwarf suns (Red Dwarf suns are the most common type of sun). They are not really conducive to life for a few reasons.
