Are We Ready For A New Earth-Like Planet?

We like to give our community new developments that's taking place around us. Scientists are preparing to unveil a new planet in our galactic neighborhood which is "believed to be Earth-like" and orbits its star at a distance that could favor life. The exoplanet orbits a well-investigated star called Proxima Centauri, part of the Alpha Centauri star system.

"The still nameless planet is believed to be Earth-like and orbits at a distance to Proxima Centauri that could allow it to have liquid water on its surface -- an important requirement for the emergence of life." "Never before have scientists discovered a second Earth that is so close by," it said, adding that the European Southern Observatory (ESO) will announce the finding at the end of August.
