Proxima Centauri: Our Closest Cosmic Neighbour May Have an Entire Solar System We Never Knew About

  Proxima Centauri: Our Closest Cosmic Neighbour May Have an Entire Solar System We Never Knew About Cold dust has never been so intriguing.The discovery is described in a new paper accepted for publication in The Astrophysical Journal Letters. "It’s the first indication of the presence of an elaborate planetary system, and not just a single planet, around the star closest to our sun," lead author Guillem Anglada, an astronomer at the Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia in Spain, said in a press release. "This result suggests that Proxima Centauri may have a multiple planet system with a rich history of interactions that resulted in the formation of a dust belt.

Asgardia, a self-declared nation , is now floating above us, drifting toward the International Space Station and perhaps destiny.

After being delayed one day, an Orbital ATK Antares rocket carrying a cubesat named Asgardia-1 launched from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia early Sunday. The milk carton-sized satellite makes up the entirety of territory of the self-proclaimed "Space Kingdom" of Asgardia.

"Asgardia space kingdom has now established its sovereign territory in space," read an online statement.

Over 300,000 people signed up online to become "citizens" of the nation over the last year. The main privilege of citizenship so far involves the right to upload data to Asgardia-1 for safekeeping in orbit, seemingly far away from the pesky governments and laws of Earth-bound countries.

NASA Discovery Fuels Search For Habitable Exoplanets

  NASA Discovery Fuels Search For Habitable Exoplanets A team from NASA have shown that atmospheric beacons around exoplanets could point to the planets' ability to sustain life.Space scientists tend to look at potential biosignatures as ways of identifying habitable worlds. Currently, we try and study the oxygen or methane cover that, over time, accumulate s in the atmosphere where it can be detected.Traces of this points to a planet that can hold life and tells researchers that pursuing a study of this planet may have a higher chance of a result, said a report.

But if you really dig down into Asgardia's terms and conditions, you'll find that those privileges are still subject to earthly copyright laws -- they're set up under the laws of Austria.

As of now, Asgardia's statehood isn't acknowledged by any other actual countries or the United Nations, and it doesn't really even fit the definition of a nation since it's not possible for a human to physically live in Asgardia.

Not yet, at least. The long-term vision for Asgardia includes human settlements in space, on the moon and perhaps even more distant colonies.

For now, though, Asgardia is a tiny satellite inside a Cygnus spacecraft set to dock with the International Space Station Tuesday morning. There, Asgardia-1 will patiently wait while Orbital ATK completes its primary mission to resupply the ISS.

After about a month, the Cygnus will detach and climb to a higher altitude where the nation-in-a-box will be deployed into orbit.

We'll see if the activation of Asgardia-1 heralds the beginning of a new era of extra-planetary citizenship, or if it slowly fades into obscurity with each trip around our planet and its nearly 200 more conventional nations.

But don't book your tickets yet—this place is definitely too hot to handle.That distant planet, known as 55 Cancri e, has been entrancing scientists since they first spotted it in 2004. It's skewed with respect to its star, its core may be basically a giant diamond, and its surface is covered in lava. It's pretty hard to turn away from a combination like that.
