I honestly can't wait for the day they create interstellar sattelites. That'll be the day that signifies our growth.

Very exciting discovery. Achieved using the radial velocity method.

 

The star itself was only discovered as recently as 2003. Makes you wonder what else is out there in our local stellar neighbourhood.

Really? Damn I thought it was discovered in the early 20h century. But yes, fascinating times are ahead.

There could be some probes on the way by the time we're middle aged. https://en.wikipedia...hrough_Starshot

On the Habitability of Teegarden's Star planets
(Submitted on 18 Jun 2019)
 
We study the habitability of the two 1-2 Earth-mass planets, recently detected by the CARMENES collaboration, around the ultra-cool nearby M dwarf Teegarden's Star. With orbital periods of 4.9 and 11.4 days, both planets are likely to be within the Habitable Zone and tidally locked. They are among the most Earth-like exoplanets yet discovered. Applying an analytical habitability model we find that surface liquid water could be present on both planets for a wide range of atmospheric properties, which makes them attractive targets for bio-signature searches. The prospects of the planets retaining such an atmosphere over their history are discussed.
