For the first, Proxima Centauri is far too small to detonate a supernova. Leaving that aside, though, even a small supernova at that distance would likely cause massive damage on earth, though some primitive organisms (I’m guessing up to and including some of the hardier arthropods [*cough*cockroaches*cough*]) would survive.
Edit: “Hardier arthropods” and suchlike that is, if they were somewhere in the deepest caves or otherwise far from the surface.
Since its discovery was announced in August of 2016, Proxima b has been an endless source of wonder and the target of many scientific studies. In addition to being the closest extra-solar planet to our Solar System, this terrestrial planet also orbits within Proxima Centauri's circumstellar habitable zone (aka. "Goldilocks Zone"). As a result, scientists have naturally sought to determine if this planet could actually be home to extra-terrestrial life.
