Kepler 22b Could be Inhabited

Scientists are running round getting excited that a planet has been discovered orbiting a far off star that could contain life. The planet is just the right distance from its star in the Goldilocks zone to support life. The Goldilocks zone is a zone around a star where the planet is not too hot and not too cold to support life.

The planet is found in an area of space by the Lyra and Cygnus constellations. It orbits the Sun in 290 days and is closer to its star than Earth. Distance to the planet is 600 Light Years so it would take 600 years travelling at the speed of light to get there sadly. If there are any inhabitants on that planet that have faster than light speed travel, we should hope their friendly and have technology to get to us.
