NASA’s planet hunting spacecraft Kepler has discovered a new alien world in its host star’s habitable zone. This find could mean the planet is capable of holding water.
This latest find is the 2,326 find from Kepler, in the first 16 months of it being active. These findings, if confirmed would quadruple the current list of worlds known to exist beyond our solar system.
This is the first planet which could be potentially habitable, a first. This planet orbits a star, like our own sun.
Kitguru says: Scientists are particularly excited as the first step to finding a planet like Earth has just been taken.
