Scientists discover super Earth type planet near the center of our galaxy

Using a technique known as gravitational microlensing scientists discovered this super Earth near the center of our Milky Way galaxy. The planet shares similarities such as orbiting a similar distance away from its sun but also differences like being four times the size of Earth

4x the size of the Earth, located near the center of the galaxy, orbiting a dim dwarf star, with an orbit that is roughly 2x Earth's year (617days to orbit the dwarf). That is not an Earth-like planet. And I very highly doubt that if is habitable.
