Kepler 452b Discovery By The Amazing NASA
The Kepler 452b Discovery, for all those Alien seekers out there, here is some good news. NASA has discovered a new distant planet that shares characteristics with ours and it has already been named ‘Earth 2.0’. It is called the bigger, older cousin to earth, the Kepler 452b Discovery.
The planet is a big discovery for scientists. Social media has been buzzing since this revelation and everyone is talking about the chances of finding faraway worlds or perhaps alien life and resources. The new planet is in the Goldilocks zone, or a zone around a star which is suitable for life. Being 1,400 light years away, we really do not know whether it has life, but it sure has the ingredients for one.

It is unknown if the planet Kepler 452b is terrestrial or not. It may very well be rocky or perhaps a small gas planet. But if the Kepler-452b turns out to be terrestrial it will most likely become the planet that is closest to the earth in terms of characteristics. The panel may very well be habitable as no other planet has shown signs of similarity to our planet more than the Kepler-452b.

Even with the best technology that we have, there no chances of reaching these exoplanets anytime soon. Even the fastest spacecraft — the Juno probe by NASA would need over 11 million years to reach the Kepler 452b.
And that’s not all. We would need 1,400 years to reach the planet if we travel at the speed of light; remember than a lot can change in that time. However, the find does put the probability of alien life existing on a much higher level.
So What’s Next for Kepler 452b?

There are people who are preparing concepts for large telescopes that will help us make maps of the earth like planet and help us understand the planet’s atmosphere in detail and let us know if the planet has oceans, clouds, weather cycles and other characteristics that may be similar to Earth.
Since we already exploited all of Earth’s resources, do you think Kepler 452b would have the same fate?What do you think of the new find? Do you think alien life exists on the planet? Do you think this planet would be a proper of what we are looking for?Let us know!
