NASA found the first Earth-like planet in the habitable zone, orbiting a star very similar to our own sun. It has a comfortable surface temperature of 21 C, a rocky surface, oceans and possibly life.
The newfound planet in the habitable zone is called Kepler-22b. It is 2.4 times the size of the Earth. This alien planet is in the middle of the habitable “Goldilocks” zone — not too hot, not too cold, but just right. This is the right atmosphere to potentially support life.
The fastest spacecraft today would take about 300,000 years to get there…If you traveled at the speed of light, it would take 600 years to get there.
What’s up with the excitement? Okay, it’s the HOPE.
Hope for everything! This is a vast, magnificent and mysterious universe! This also validates the mission and gives NASA a reason to keep on keeping on. NASA is off the planet. Watch the sky.
