NASA’s Habitable Exoplanets Catalog keeps tabs on which worlds may have the potential to host life.
This planet is also close to Earth at just 11 light years away. It is the closest planet orbiting a red dwarf star, and is likely to be a terrestrial world like our home planet.
This world orbits one of the smallest stars we know of. But since it is the innermost planet in that system, researchers think it could be warm enough to be habitable.
