Red dwarfs are small reddish stars, that are by far the most common type of star in solar neighborhood. Their mass is usually between 10 and 50 % of solar mass.
Using the radial velocity method astronomers discovered two small exoplanets orbiting nearby star Gliese 1002. The star is a small red dwarf only 16 light years away. The new discovery makes it the 22nd closest planetary system.
