NASA Found A Planet That May Contain Life: Earth 2.0.
It’s called Kepler – 186F, and NASA says it may contain life.
According to NASA, the planet which resembles Earth, was discovered orbiting in a relatively nearby star within our Milky Way galaxy.
The oversize planet, known as Kepler – 180 6F, is the first to be found within the habitable zone, where conditions are just right in terms of the balance between atmospheric pressure and temperature for water to exist as a liquid.
Although it has been estimated that at least 40 billion earths sized planets orbit within the Milky Way, this discovery was the needle in the haystack that seems to indicate that earth may not be so unique.
“We know of just one planet were life exists – Earth. When we search for life outside our solar system we focus on finding planets with characteristics that mimic that of Earth,” said Elisa Quintana, research scientist at the SETI Institute at NASA’s Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California. “Finding a habitable zone planet comparable to earth in size is a major step forward.”
