    Astronomers have discovered a potentially habitable exoplanet around Teegarden's Star.

    Teegarden is an old red dwarf star 12 light-years away in the Aries constellation.

    The exoplanet found, called Teegarden b, has a minimum mass almost identical to Earth.

    It orbits within the star's habitable zone. And it has a 60% chance of having a temperate surface environment.

    Surface temperature should be closer to 28°C assuming a similar terrestrial atmosphere.

    Teegarden b is the exoplanet with the highest Earth Similarity Index discovered so far: 95%.

    This means that it has the closest mass and insolation to terrestrial values.
