The discovery of an Earth scale planet in the habitable zone of our nearest star, Proxima Centauri was recent big news. Here is a video of a SETI Institute panel discussion of the finding: A Terrestrial Exoplanet at Proxima Centauri | SETI Institute. The video starts with Guillem Anglada, who led the group that made the discovery, giving an overview of their finding.

Dr. Anglada will discuss the new paper he is first author in reporting the presence of a 1.3 Earth mass exoplanet in a temperate orbit around Proxima Centauri. This finding was reported in Nature on Thursday 25 Aug 2016.
Dr. Anglada will particpate remotely, and Dr. Franck Marchis of the SETI Institute will host a local panel to discuss the implications of the finding. “Our little world will never seem the same again”.
