NASA Discovers Earth Has a Twin Planet?
And NASA says there’s a planet an awful lot like Earth.
The Blaze Reports:
NASA has found a new planet outside our solar system that’s eerily similar to Earth in key aspects.
Scientists say the temperature on the surface of Kepler-22b, as it’s named, is about a comfy 72 degrees and is about 600 light years away. Its star is very similar to our sun and the planet likely has water and land. It was found in the middle of the habitable zone, making it the best potential target found for life yet.
Kepler is also credited with the recent finding of a real-life Tatooine planet.
