Astrophysicists recently revealed the discovery of a rocky Earth-sized planet very close to Earth in size. Dubbed GJ1132b, the planet is also a sizzler at 840 degrees surface temp.
272 trillion miles is one light year. That makes the new planed ten thousand six hundred and eight trillion miles. That puts the planet close in galactic terms (though incomprehensible in human terms)
GJ113392b is located 39 lightyears away. Even though it sounds far, it is 3 times closer than the next closest planet in the goldilocks zone.
