A fly-through of the Proxima Centauri system

This video takes the viewer from Earth to the closest star, Proxima Centauri. Here we can see the planet Proxima b, which orbits its red dwarf star every 11.2 days. This planet orbits within the habitable zone, shown in green, which means that liquid water could exist on its surface.
