Caption: From Earth to Proxima b. Animation of a flight from Earth to Proxima b, a roughly Earth-sized rocky planet that orbits the red dwarf star Proxima Centauri, the closest star to our Sun. The constellations of Centaurus and the Southern Cross (Crux) appear as the flight approaches Proxima Centauri, the faintest component of the Alpha Centauri triple star system. The discovery of Proxima b was announced in August 2016. It orbits in the habitable zone around Proxima Centauri, where the temperature is suitable for liquid water to exist on its surface.
