Merry Christmas, friends and fellow bloggers! In view of the holiday season, I’ll keep this post short and to the point. As you make a Christmas wish to the stars this evening, please bear in mind that 1 of these tiny white dots is actually a red-dwarf star Kepler-438. And orbiting this star within the potentially habitable zone is a planet slightly larger than our own, Kepler-438b. Maybe at this time of year, the citizens on Kepler-438b are also celebrating Christmas.
