no one has ever seen it..

it's properties actually comes from a science fiction novel published in 2013.



In other words, somebody copied the text from the science fiction novel
and that is how Proxima b got it's properties.


Didn't H.G. Wells did the same thing with...Canals of Mars???



Jonathan Swift described the moons of Mars in "Gulliver's Travels" in 1726. I guess that's how they got their properties.
