Hi Miryam. Wouldn't there be an app for that? Just wondering. When it comes to other languages I just nod and try to look intelligent.

"Star next door may host a 'superhabitable' world"

"Earth may be our home, but another planet even cosier for life could be orbiting the star next door. A detailed analysis of what might make planets suitable for life says that Alpha Centauri B, the star closest to our sun, would be the perfect star to host a "superhabitable" planet – a world of islands, shallow seas and gentle slopes, where the conditions needed to support a diverse array of life forms would persist for up to 10 billion years. But the near-paradise would come at a cost to visitors from Earth: the pull of gravity would be about one-quarter stronger than on our home turf."

“The picture Hawking gives sounds reasonable,” Don Page, a physicist and expert on black holes at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada told Nature. “You could say that it is radical to propose there’s no event horizon. But these are highly quantum conditions, and there’s ambiguity about what space-time even is, let alone whether there is a definite region that can be marked as an event horizon.”
