According to NASA Kepler 452b, discovered the smallest planet in the habitable zone around. The habitable zone where liquid water could together on the surface of a planet orbiting a star near its the marked area.
In a statement, NASA, the total number of planets that Kepler said confirmation 452b 1030th
"We understand and provide an opportunity to reflect the changing environment, in an old world, can Kepler-452b as big cousin seems" analysis, said John Jenkins, Ames Research Center in Moffett Field NASA in California, to the cause to discover the leadership program, he said. "This planet is in the habitable zone of its star has grown by 6 billion of great years in mind that for important occasions that occur in life that all the ingredients and living conditions that would exist in the last planet .."
The diameter of the Earth is about 60 percent larger than the planet, which is about 1,400 light-years away in the constellation Cygnus. Could rocky planets similar in size to its previous studies show that, although yet to be determined scientists to its mass and composition.
The purpose of the mission of NASA spacecraft Kepler is exploring the diversity of planetary systems formed and launched in 2009 to life.
Austin McDonald Observatory, Fred Lawrence Whipple Observatory on Mount Hopkins University Earth Observatory in Texas, Arizona, and the WM Keck Observatory on Mauna Kea in Hawaii Kepler-452 system is used to ensure that the search Kepler Space Observatory.
Chris Carberry, Mars, Mars man, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing, Male Executive Director should be promoted in a series of discoveries of Kepler 452b told FoxNews.com that an important springboard.
"The announcement of Kepler was inevitable and imminent passage of time, we can expect many more discoveries," he said in an email. "Improving our ability to give us a living planet can not find (or not) is likely to sustain life -. I can not discoveries in the next decade will introduce themselves can not"
