An Earth-sized planet, probably rocky, has been discovered orbiting the red dwarf star of Proxima Centauri, which is the closest star to the Sun. The planet is known as Proxima Centauri B.

Been reading some DC comics recently. Too bad they didn't call it Earth-2.

I recall by the early 1990's and the Sun being the only stars known to be orbited by planets. So boring.
