A second Earth was recently discovered in the Proxima Centauri System which is an identical replica of our own according to experts all around the globe.
The existence of liquid water on it already got everyone stoked as this already increases the chances of life have formed upon the planet already.
Since liquid water is the major element that is missing on most any planet out there, we can already tell the fact that its existence on this planet is already making it a great contender for the next road trip NASA’s going to take.
Originally referred to as Proxima B, this is a far bigger planet than our own, 1.3 times bigger to be precise, and although it is rockier than us too altogether it is also believed to have quite inhabitable temperatures too of anywhere between -90 and 30 degrees Celsius.
In case life hasn’t formed up already on it, as scientists did state that the planet is still in its infancy level, the experts believe that we should be able to colonize it for our own interest in the near future.
The only problem is that in order to reach it we’ll need to travel anywhere around 4 light-years away from our current position which we don’t have the technology to do as of yet.
Still, experts are definitely still stoked to have found out about Proxima B, the Second Earth that humanity will try its hardest to visit at least once until we perish.
