  • Scientist at NASA Discovered Two of the Most Earth like Planet

    The Scientist at NASA after analyzing the data provided by its Kepler Satellite has identified 8 planets which have the most favorable conditions for the existence of life. Out of the eight planets two of them is the most Earth-like of all discovered till date.

    The two planets named as Dubbed Kepler 438b and Kepler 442 b, appear to be rocky and orbit in the not-too-hot, not-too-cold habitable zones of their stars where liquid water can exist in abundance.

    Both planets are many hundreds of light-years away and orbit stars smaller and dimmer than our sun. Like most of Kepler's finds, they were discovered via transits—the shadows they cast toward our solar system as they cross the blazing faces of their stars.

    Kepler 438 b is only about 12 percent larger than Earth, and basks in 40 percent more starlight; Kepler 442 b is 30 percent larger and receives about 30 percent less light.
