Two exoplanets might be orbiting the nearest star the red dwarf Proxima Centauri that’s about 4.24 light-years away. It would not be in the habitable zone where water is liquid.
Mario Damasso of Italy’s Observatory of Turin announced on April 12 during the 2019 Breakthrough Discuss conference that they believe they have discovered Proxima C.
If this evidence is confirmed then it would be super-earth about six times larger than the Earth.
In 2016, the first exoplanet was found at Proxima Centauri. Proxima B is least 1.3 times as massive as Earth that’s perhaps warm enough for life as we know it to thrive on its surface.
