The physical body is for ordinary mortals the prison of the Soul. In it we can see merely what comes before its windows, and take cognizance only of what is brought within its bars. But the true Adept and Seer has found the key of this prison, which becomes henceforth only a temporary dwelling place.

This Is Big: Scientists Just Found Earth’s First-Cousin

Right now, 500 light years away from Earth, there’s a planet that looks a lot like our own. It is bathed in dim orangeish light, which at high noon is only as bright as the golden hour before sunset back home. 

NASA scientists are calling the planet Kepler-186f, and it’s unlike anything they’ve found. The big news: Kepler-186f is the closest relative to the Earth that researchers have discovered. 

It’s the first Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of another star—the sweet spot between too-hot Mercury-like planets and too-cold Neptunes— and it is likely to give scientists their first real opportunity to seek life elsewhere in the universe. “It’s no longer in the realm of science fiction,” said Elisa Quintana, a researcher at the SETI Institute. 

But if there is indeed life on Kepler-186f, it may not look like what we have here. Given the redder wavelengths of light on the planet, vegetation there would sprout in hues of yellow and orange instead of green.

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.

astrophography by knate myers at the karl g. jansky very large array (vla), a radio astronomy observatory located on the plains of san agustin, fifty miles west of socorro, new mexico. the vla was perhaps made most famous by carl sagan in the original cosmos documentary, and in the movie “contact”, which was based on his novel.
