Default Earth-mass world discovered in orbit around Proxima Centauri!

Planet Found in Habitable Zone Around Nearest Star | ESO

Unknown so far as to whether it might be habitable, but exciting news nonetheless !

wiki says the planet may be tidally locked (meaning one side is baked by the sun and the other is freeing),so only a thin strip going around the middle of the planet would be habitable as it is in the middle of both extreme environments but i agree with you it is still exciting (sorry about my lecture)
