Or rather a planet where Star Trek said Vulcan exists.
The planet (Vulcan) orbits the star 40 Eridani A in the constellation Eridanus , it's 16 light years from Earth and sits within its Sun's habitable zone , sadly no confirmation of Vulcans or Ambassador Spock at this time.


More precisely, it's an object known as a super-Earth - a rocky planet around twice the size of Earth, orbiting 40 Eridani A just inside the system's habitable zone - not too hot and not too cold. It completes one orbit every 42 (Earth) days.
So life on the planet isn't unfeasible.



"The orange-tinted HD 26965 [40 Eridani A] is only slightly cooler and slightly less massive than our Sun, is approximately the same age as our Sun, and has a 10.1-year magnetic cycle nearly identical to the Sun's 11.6-year sunspot cycle," said astronomer Matthew Muterspaugh of Tennessee State University.

"Therefore HD 26965 may be an ideal host star for an advanced civilisation."

Even if it had, we'd still have a 16 year window to catch a glimpse of it.

The needs of the many out weigh the needs of the few... or the one.

-Spock, upon taking, and passing the Kobayashi Maru test

Yes Communism 101 with a few Vulcan mental persuaders thrown in for non-compliance; but they used logic & science so got a free pass!

Snags them every time!

Hey! Isn't planet Vulcan run by a High Priestess?? That seems, illogical.

Obligatory nice find, not just for us ST Nerds. Hopefully a Borg cube won't be found as well.

Of course not since Zefram Cochrane has yet to create a warp drive system and achieve the first human light-speed flight that gets the Vulcan's attention. Let history happen.

So it is twice as large and 8-9 times as heavy as Earth. This means 3-4 g surface gravity I guess. That doesn't sound very comfortable, especially for any bipedal life forms.
