A fly-through of the Proxima Centauri system

This video simulation takes the viewer on a journey at 20% of the speed of light 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, which means that liquid water could exist on its surface.
