Gliese 163 c (//) or Gl 163 c is said to be a potentially habitable exoplanet, on the basis of its distance from its star being compatible with temperatures that would allow liquid water to exist on the surface, orbiting the red dwarf Gliese 163. The parent star is 15.0 parsecs (approximately 49 light-years, or 465,000,000,000,000 kilometers) from the Sun, in the constellation Dorado. Gliese 163 c is one of three planets discovered in the system. With a mass at least 7.2 times that of the Earth, it is classified as a super-Earth (a planet of roughly 1 to 10 Earth masses).
