Did you hear that exoplanet Proxima b was blasted with radiation in March 2017?

Since its discovery in 2016, the exoplanet Proxima b has been one of our most promising candidates for extraterrestrial life. Recent news that a powerful solar flare blasted the planet with radiation in March 2017 may have dashed those hopes of habitability.

That stinks, and it sounds like it wasn't a one time event.
It probably has been going on throughout the existence of the planet.
That means that it's highly unlikely that life ever got a foothold.
Being it's relatively close, that's disappointing.
Still, there are a gazillion stars out there that are similar to our Sun.
I'm very confident that many of them host life.

It worked fine for me. In a couple of years we'll be seeing videos of the James Webb discoveries.

I do not understand why the video did work for you.
You can Goggle the Futurism link. It is also on Twitter.
