BREAKING: New potentially habitable exoplanet found around Teegarden's star

Astronomers have discovered a potentially habitable exoplanet around Teegarden's Star.

Teegarden is an old red dwarf star 12 light-years away in the Aries constellation.

The exoplanet found, called Teegarden b, has a minimum mass almost identical to Earth.

It orbits within the star's habitable zone.

And it has a 60% chance of having a temperate surface environment.

Surface temperature should be closer to 28įC assuming a similar terrestrial atmosphere.

Teegarden b is the exoplanet with the highest Earth Similarity Index discovered so far: 95%.

This means that it has the closest mass and insolation to terrestrial values.

Interesting. Thanks.
According to Carlo Rovelli and Lee Smolin and Loop Quantum Gravity theory the time constant is not required in calculations. So perhaps one day we can work out how to send a probe there a tiny bit quicker. That is unless the planet is already dead and we just donít know it yet.
