Possible Earth-Like Planet Discovered Orbiting Inactive Star

ESO's High Accuracy Radial velocity Planet Searcher (HARPS) discovered a planet (designated Ross 128b) orbiting an inactive red dwarf star only 11 light years away. It the second closest exoplanet to be found that has the potential to sustain life. Exoplanet Proxima b is closer but the red dwarf star it orbits is active, decreasing the chances habitability.
