According to a report by Geek.com, scientists have discovered that a recently discovered super-Earth exoplanet orbiting Barnard's Star, could potentially host primitive life. According to Villanova University astrophysicist and study co-author Edward Guinan, despite the planet's freezing surface, "Geothermal heating could support ‘life zones’ under its surface, akin to subsurface lakes found in Antarctica." The discovery of Barnard's Star b was reportedly announced back in November of 2018 in a paper published by the journal Nature. Geek.com reports that the massive exoplanet has a mass of at least 3.2 times that of our planet, orbits a cool, low-mass red dwarf in about 233 days, and is about 9 billion years old.
