Australian researchers have found a potentially inhabitable planet – called Wolf 1061c – which is 14 light years away, about a third closer than the nearest such planet
Alien life could be closer than previously thought after Australian scientists found the closest potentially habitable planet to earth.
The planet, named Wolf 1061c, orbits a star 14 light years away – about a third closer than the next nearest potentially inhabitable planet, which was found in 2013.

Astronomers described the planet as “an incredibly close object” even though it is 80 trillion miles away and about 100 times too faint to be seen with the naked eye.
