Proxima Centauri b Climate Model Scenarios

Proxima Centauri b is the closest exoplanet to Earth. It is only four light years away. NASA scientists studying this exoplanet have applied Earth system science models to generate several different scenarios of what Proxima Centauri b may actually be like. Here are four of those scenarios.
