I noticed that Teegarden's star is missing from Space Engine 0.9.8.0. Could someone make a mod for it? It's not in the Catalog.

The star is in SpaceEngine.

His name is '2MASS J02530084+1652532'. (Teegarden's star)

You can name him Teegarden's star.

In the wikipedia article (that JackDole has kindly linked in his response) it is stated that the year of discovery was 2003 (13 years ago). This is one of the closest stars to the solar system: as you can see here, we could explore it in the year 2111 with a nano-sail probe. It even has one unconfirmed planet.

simonecinque1992 Please do a quick search in wikipedia before asking.
And steeljaw354, was it really necessary to make a new thread only for that question? I'm sorry for been the annoying one this time but it's important that we don't saturate the forum in this way. Some global moderator correct me if I'm wrong.

What is the new Exoplanet? Can it be added to Space Engine?

As I said, the planet is unconfirmed because there is too little data (they only used a few datapoints of radial velocity measurements). The candidate is not "new", it was first discussed in 2012 in this article. In page 11 you can see the properties of this unconfirmed planet:

It has an orbital period of 2.06 days, it orbits Teegarden's star at 0.014 AU (so, inside the habitable zone of the star) and it has a minimum mass of 4.88 Neptunes (assuming a circular orbit).
