NASA discovers Earth-sized planet that may sustain life
It’s like finding a needle in a universe-wide haystack. Researchers have located a planet roughly the size of Earth that could be habitable. Designated Kepler-186f, the planet is 490 light-years away. But in the search for worlds similar to ours, nothing has come closer.
After spotting it, the institute wasted no time searching for emissions that could indicate the presence of ETs. So far, no emissions have been found. The size — estimated to be 10% larger than Earth — and distance from its star don’t just make for interesting factoids. They give scientists hope that Kepler-186f might sustain life as we know it.
Study without desire spoils the memory, and it retains nothing that it takes in.
