Kepler Data Reveals Earth-like Exoplanet that could Sustain Life
Keplar data has revealed a planet five hundred light-years away that could potentially sustain life. The planet, dubbed Kepler-186f, is similar in size to Earth and may have the right conditions to support liquid water on its surface. Those two factors make it the first planet discovered with similar properties to Earth, meaning the exoplanet could support life. It was also discovered that the planet draws its energy from its star, a red dwarf. Astronomers believe it is the first of many planets to be discovered with NASA projects like the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite and the James Webb Space Telescope.
