Imagine a habitable planet just a stone’s throw away. Enter Proxima b, a planet only 4.3 light-years from Earth. Similar in size to our home and orbiting a Sun-like star, it raises hopes for human colonization. But here’s the catch: one side is permanently bathed in sunlight while the other remains in darkness.
