Refers to most recent most Earth-like planet ever seen. The planet, known as Kepler 452-b, is 60 percent larger in diameter than Earth and is considered a super-Earth-size planet.

What we know so far about Kepler 452-b:

  • t's the smallest exoplanet discovered to date discovered orbiting in the habitable zone of a G2-class star, just like the Earth and the Sun.

  • Kepler-452b is 60 percent larger in diameter than Earth and is considered a super-Earth-size planet.

  • It's likely rocky.

  • While Kepler-452b is larger than Earth, its 385-day orbit is only 5 percent longer.

  • The planet is 5 percent farther from its parent star Kepler-452 than Earth is from the Sun.

  • Kepler-452 is 6 billion years old, 1.5 billion years older than our sun, has the same temperature, and is 20 percent brighter and has a diameter 10 percent larger.

  • The Kepler-452 system is located 1,400 light-years away in the constellation Cygnus.

The Kepler-452 system is located 1,400 light-years away in the constellation Cygnus. Pluto is 4 light hours away, and it took us 10 years to get there. It feels like we as a species will never be able to explore that distances.

Bullshit news reporting in:

Nasa stopped investigating new earth like planet for fear of finding a region identical to the middle east.
ISIS vows to revenge.
