It was discovered that there could be another planet next to the planet Proxima b, which is very similar to Earth and has the possibility to have life on it.
Proxima b, the closest Earth-like planet discovered so far, is 4.2 light-years away from Earth and proxima Centauri, a red dwarf, orbiting it. Proxima b, which is able to contain liquid water on the surface of the habitable area, is about the same size as the Earth.
Although Proxima b was previously thought to be the only planet circling around Proxima Centauri, new evidence has shown that the planet may be a neighbor: Proxima c.
The research section of the development announced during the Breakthrough Initiatives Conference was conducted by Mario Damasso of the University of Turin in Italy and Fabio Del Sordo of the University of Crete in Greece. A group of scientists involved in the study observed Proxima Centauri using the High Precision Radial Velocity Planet Searcher
Life on the Proxima Centauri b Planet Very Similar to Earth
The discovery of a shake around Proxima Centauri is a harbinger of a second planet around the star. Although this swing or wobble was observed in previous years, it was only important around the border.
However, Damasso and Sordo want to emphasize that this is only a preliminary finding. According to Scientific American, during the presentation, Damasso said to the planet, Dünya I'm just a candidate, I want to underscore it. Pro
Proxima c, if there really is a planet, is estimated to be about 6 times the mass of our Earth. The planet circling its star in 1900 days is somewhere about 1.5 times the distance between the Sun and the Earth. This means life is impossible when you put it in the cold zone.
So keep in mind that if you go to Proxima Centauri and stay a few nights in the vicinity, there might not be a place to go except for Proxima b (:
