N.A.S.A. scientists that working on the kepler space telescope have revealed that they have discovered an extrasolar planet (exoplanet) that is very similar to our our planet Earth. The planet is about 1.6x the size of our planet and is in the Goldilocks zone round its star Kepler 452. The fact that is located in the Goldilocks Zone increases the chances that there are Aliens out there and we are not alone. However the planet is about 1,400 Light Years away in the constellation of Cygnus and would take 1400 years travelling at the speed of light to get there. More information on this planet can be found can be found on the Kepler 452b dedicated page.
