Why Did Life Generate? Why Does Life Evolve? Physical Perspective of the Origin of Life
To approach the origin of life, the physical inevitability of generation and evolution of life is the fundamental issue that must be first addressed. The question “Why did life generate?” asks

An Earth-mass planet orbiting α Centauri B
TLDR
The detection of an Earth-mass planet orbiting the authors' neighbour star α Centauri B, a member of the closest stellar system to the Sun, is reported.
A terrestrial planet candidate in a temperate orbit around Proxima Centauri
TLDR
Observations reveal the presence of a small planet with a minimum mass of about 1.3 Earth masses orbiting Proxima with a period of approximately 11.2 days at a semi-major-axis distance of around 0.05 astronomical units.
Ghost in the time series: no planet for Alpha Cen B
We re-analyse the publicly available radial velocity (RV) measurements for Alpha Cen B, a star hosting an Earth-mass planet candidate, Alpha Cen Bb, with 3.24 day orbital period. We demonstrate that
THE RADIAL VELOCITY DETECTION OF EARTH-MASS PLANETS IN THE PRESENCE OF ACTIVITY NOISE: THE CASE OF α CENTAURI Bb
We present an analysis of the publicly available HARPS radial velocity (RV) measurements for α Cen B, a star hosting an Earth-mass planet candidate in a 3.24 day orbit. The goal is to devise robust
