secound earth.what do you think of this new discovery?




NASA Kepler-22b, a planet known to comfortably círculo in the habitable zone of a sun-like star. It is the first planet that NASA's Kepler mission has confirmed to orbit in a star's "habitable zone" -- the region around a estrela where liquid water, a requirement for life on Earth, could persist.


NASA announced a major milestone in the quest for life in the universe Monday: The discovery of another planet close enough to the sun it orbits to potentially support life.

Called Kepler-22b, the planet is about 2.4 times the radius of Earth and about 600 light-years away. And it orbits in the "habitable zone," the region of o espaço just far enough from a estrela that liquid water could exist on the planet's surface -- a discovery could have profound implications in the quest for alien life, said Alan Boss, an astrophysicist with Carnegie Melon University.














“This discovery supports the growing belief that we live in a universe crowded with life,” Boss said. “Kepler is on the verge of determining the actual abundance of habitable, Earth-like planets in our galaxy."

The host estrela lies about 600 light-years away from us (1 light ano is about 6 trillion miles) toward the constellations of Lyra and Cygnus, the researchers said, and is about 25 percent less luminous than the Sun. Kepler-22b orbits the estrela every 290 days, as compared with 365 days for the Earth, at a distance about 15 percent closer to its estrela than the Earth from the Sun -- close enough to suggest a pleasing, balmy temperature on the surface.

Such a temperature means liquid water could exist on the surface of the planet, something necessary for life as we know it -- and this new planet might well be not only habitable but perhaps even inhabited.

"This is a major milestone on the road to finding Earth's twin," said Douglas Hudgins, Kepler program scientist at NASA Headquarters in Washington. "Kepler's results continue to demonstrate the importance of NASA'

Huh, interesting.


If anyone lives there, you think they'd mind if we sent the Kardashians to live there permanently?

'bout time we find a planet that's useful, but 600 light-years is a little farther away than we can go...


Plus, we don't know if anyone's already there, or whether the planet's still there.

I heard about that.
I like the idea, but 600 light years away?
How are they going to transport people there?Even If they would make a ship big enough, there would be the fuel problem.
So, we are not gonna leave this planet soon.

For real? It's the first time I hear about it!
Woah...that's so awesome!
Still I don't think we gonna be able to explore it soon...600 light-years are pretty far away!
