Proxima Centauri may be an interloper from far away. The stellar system closest to Earth consists of three stars: the closely orbiting pair of Alpha Centauri A and B, and an outlier called Proxima Centauri. A new analysis finds that Proxima, along with its planet Proxima b, may not have been born alongside its stellar siblings. If so, the planet could have a better chance at harbouring life. Proxima Centauri’s orbit is currently bound to Alpha Centauri A and B, but it is unclear if it has always been stable or if it will stay bound, according to Fabo Feng and Hugh Jones at the University of Hertfordshire in the UK.
