This is an artists impression of the planet Proxima b which is orbiting our solar system. Scientists made this announcement on Wednesday that is it very Earth-like in that it has a temperature that would allow water to exist there. We don`t know if anything is living there. The European Southern Observatory said `This rocky world is a little more massive than the Earth and is the closest exoplanet to us, and it may also be the closest possible abode for life outside the solar system.` Apparently other Earth-like planets that have been discovered are much farther away from Earth and so this makes the discovery of Proxima b more exciting.
