Kepler-62f and Kepler-62e Discovered the Most Earth-Like Alien Planet

NASA's Kepler space telescope has discovered about three exoplanets which will allow to sustain life, as well as at least one could very well be by far the most Earth-like alien world discovered up to now, researchers announced today (April 18). 

That most stunning one is called Kepler-62f, a rugged globe greater only 1.4 times than our Planet that wills circles a star more compact as well as dimmer compared to our sun. Kepler-62f’s newly found next door neighbor, Kepler-62e, is definitely 1.6 times bigger than our Planet, making the couple one of the tiniest exoplanets yet found in the star's habitable zoom— the array of distances in which fluid water can be found on the planet's exterior.

Kepler-62e as well as f, that are a part of the recently found five-planet system, "look very good as possibilities for looking for life," said Kepler science principal investigator Bill Borucki, of NASA's Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California.

"The 3rd potentially habitable planet, known as Kepler-69c, is 1.7 times larger than Earth as well as orbits a star much like our sun. It is the tiniest planet discovered ever in zone of a sun like star, scientists claimed, and symbolizes a huge step towards finding the first ever "alien Earth." Space.com

The $600 million worth of Kepler observatory launched in March 2009 for to explore the new earth like exoplanets in the habitable spectrum within their parent stars.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
