Kepler-22b New Planet With Earth-Like Characteristics Discovered In Habitable Zone thoughts NASA's Kepler Confirms Its First Planet in Habitable Zone of Sun-like Star: Kepler 22-b (5/12/2011) thoughts NASA's Kepler Mission Announces Latest Planetary Discovery thoughts This is amazing news according to reports NASA announced the discovery of Kepler-22b this is great the first planet the Kepler spacecraft has discovered in the habitable zone, an area with a distance from a star where temperatures will permit the existence of liquid water.Reports say the discovery of Kepler-22b which is 600 light-years away from Earth, brings scientists one step closer to finding a planet that could possibly harbor life Earth may not be the only one This is a major milestone on the road to finding Earth's twins Kepler's results continue to demonstrate the importance of NASA's science missions, which aim to answer some of the biggest questions about our place in the universe Kepler-22b has several Earth-like characteristics according to reports The new planet's temperature is around 72 degrees Fahrenheit and its radius is 2.4 times Earth's. The planet completely orbits its star, which is similar to our sun, every 290 days, just 75 days shy of an Earth year Reports say that the National Optical Astronomy Observatory announced the discovery of Kepler-21b, a new planet with a radius 1.6 times Earth's. But unlike Kepler-21b, which is only about 3.7 million miles away from its sun and is therefore a scorching 2,960 degrees Fahrenheit, Kepler-22b is about 79 million miles from its sun, coming in at a pleasant 72 degrees. it's not yet clear if Kepler-22b is composed or rock, gas or liquid according to reports. Scientists use the Kepler spacecraft to discover new planets by analyzing extremely faint dips in light from far-away stars. These "dips" occur each time the planet passes between the Kepler and its sun, therefore obstructing the star's light. In order for a planet to be confirmed, scientists must observe the celestial body orbit its sun three times according to sources Kepler-22B takes 290 days to orbit its sun, it took nearly three Earth years for scientists to confirm that it was a planet.
