g 37 Geminorum has many physical properties in common with the Sun and is one of the nearest solar twins. Due to this fact some scientists believe that the prospects for life in its vicinity are good. In September, 2003, 37 Geminorum was identified by astrobiologist Margaret Turnbull from the University of Arizona in Tucson as one of the most promising nearby candidates for hosting life based on her analysis of the HabCat list of stars.
g A METI message sent to 37 Geminorum on Sept. 3, 2001. It was transmitted from Eurasia's largest radar — 70-meter Eupatoria Planetary Radar. The message was named the Teen Age Message, and it will arrive at 37 Geminorum in December 2057.
