New Planet Discovered That Might Have Extra-Galactic Life

From the Daily Mail:

Astronomers have found a planet just 13 light years from Earth that is ripe for life, with just the right mild temperatures to allow liquid water on its surface. 
And the ‘super-Earth’ is all the more interesting because it originated from another galaxy, meaning it could play host to extragalactic life. 
The star it orbits - Kapteyn’s star - was flung into the Milky Way when its previous galaxy was torn apart by our own.
