Russian Scientists Counted How Long Flight to Earth' Twin Will Take

Kirill Tsiberkin, the theoretical physics engineer of the Perm State National Research University has established that it will take not less than forty yearset to get to the exoplanet Proxima B, which is the closest one to the Solar system.

      Life on this planet is as close as possible to conditions habitual for the Earthlings.

      The Proxima B 4,2 light years away from the Sun. That is 266 thousand times more than the distance from the Earth to the Sun. The exoplanet reaches 1,3 mass of the Earth, but one year on it lasts for 11,2 days only. Scientists assume the possibility of this planet having water in liquid form and atmosphere. They expect air temperature of 30 to 40 centigrade there. In case there is no atmosphere on the planet, however, the temperature must be from 28 to 40 centigrade below zero.
