The star is classified as a red dwarf, which are some of the coolest, faintest - and most common - stars in the universe.
Ross 128 b is 20 times closer to its star than Earth is to the sun, hence its year lasts just 9.9 days.
The new world was discovered by a team using the High Accuracy Radial velocity Planet Searcher (Harps) instrument at the La Silla Observatory in Chile.
A study has found that not only is the planet the same size as the earth, it also has a similar surface temperature that may be "the closest known comfortable abode for possible life". The next generation of large ground-based telescopes, including the European Extremely Large Telescope, should be able to resolve features such as oxygen in the atmosphere of these nearby exoplanets. "Signal" but later reported that his investigation - in which he got help from the nonprofit Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, better known as SETI - suggested they were "transmissions from one or more geostationary satellites".

The only closer temperate planet is Proxima b, whose star, another red dwarf, bombards it with ultraviolet and X-ray radiation, possibly rendering it uninhabitable.
"Meanwhile, it is probably preferable to refer to Ross 128 b as a temperate planet rather than as a habitable zone planet", the authors wrote.

While researchers have expressed excitement over the discovery, the ESO notes: "Uncertainty remains as to whether the planet lies inside, outside, or on the cusp of the habitable zone, where liquid water may exist on a planet's surface". The astronomers detail their discovery in a new study, published Wednesday in the journal Astronomy and Astrophysics. Close inspection reveals that Ross 128 has a odd multiple appearance as this image was created from photographs taken over a more than forty year period by the Digitized Sky Survey 2, and the star, which is only 11 light-years from Earth, moved across the sky significantly during this time.
While Ross 128 b shares two very important characteristics with Earth, little else about it is familiar to us.
