The space body can be "sister" of potentially manned planet which is earlier found near. Traces of existence of the new exoplanet are found in the star of Proxima of the Centaur, next to the Sun. Naked Science reports about it. Earlier near Proxima of the Centaur the planet Proxima of b was found. It is similar to Earth the sizes and remoteness about the star that does it potentially manned. Active observations of Proxima of b allowed astronomers to draw a conclusion that nearby there is one more planet. Scientists told about it at the forum Breakthrough Discuss in the American Berkeley. Experts emphasize that so far it is "about the candidate for opening", and existence of the exoplanet still needs to be confirmed. According to preliminary data, the Proxima with belongs besides to a class of planets, as Proxima of b. Its weight is six times more than the mass of Earth, and it is remote from a star one and a half times farther. The planet makes a whole revolution on an orbit in 1936 terrestrial days, and it is too cold for availability of liquid water and life habitual to us there.
