“Kepler has spent all its time looking for planets like Earth,” says James Davenport, a postdoctoral researcher at Western Washington University and co-founder of the #waveatkepler outreach effort. “One of the last things it will do is turn around…

Aurorae aside, Proxima b’s severe space weather doesn’t create the prettiest of pictures, at least to human eyes. “We’ve seen 10 huge flares over the span of a few weeks time,” said Matthews. “We estimate the star has flares which we would consider major…

Proxima b, just revealed as the nearest exoplanet to Earth, is probably battered by incredible bursts of energy from its star every few months. That could be bad news for the prospects of finding life on our neighbouring world. Stars, including our sun, produce flares when their magnetic fields…

The European Southern Observatory (ESO) has just recently confirmed the discovery of a potentially habitable planet orbiting Proxima Centauri, a few light years away from Earth.
But researchers have discovered massive bursts of energy from Proxima b's red dwarf star, Proxima Centauri…

Jim Davenport, a postdoctoral fellow at Western Washington University, believes Proxima b’s biggest obstacle to Earth-like conditions is likely to be Proxima Centauri’s continual flares, which can be ten times more energetic than any ever observed on our Sun. Harsh x-rays and ultraviolet…

BELLINGHAM ­– About four light years away from our planet sits Proxima Centauri, the closest star to our solar system, and orbiting it is its just-discovered companion, a small Earth-like planet that, for now at least, holds the unassuming name of Proxima b.

At this distance, Proxima b is…
