And the “Space” website reported a study that stated that this exoplanet, which it called “Glies 486b”, has an atmosphere like Earth.
The planet “Glies 486b” is the third closest transiting exoplanet among the exoplanets known to scientists, and it is about 1.3 times larger than the planet Earth, and it is 2.8 times heavier than it.

It is likely that the remaining planets, which are far from this star and bear the same characteristics as the discovered planet, have an atmosphere and are habitable, in light of the low probability of life on Glies 486 B due to the temperature inside it.
