These days, most Earthlings are very excited about the new photographs of Pluto that have been released by NASA’s New Horizons Space Probe that took about a decade to reach the dwarf planet.

The heart-shaped indentation on the planet surface is truly getting positive responses here on earth. A few weeks after the release of the photographs of Pluto, NASA managed to get our attention once more.

The space telescope from NASA has released a few images of a planet that is very similar to earth in several physical aspects. The Earth-like planet is known as ‘Kepler 452b’, and it revolves around a star that is much like the sun of our solar system within 385 days. The said planet is about 1,400 light-years away from the Earth

The associate administrator of NASA’s science mission directorate, John Grunsfeld, said,

“On the 20th anniversary year of the discovery that proved other suns host planets, the Kepler exoplanet explorer has discovered a planet and star which most closely resemble the Earth and our Sun. This exciting result brings us one step closer to finding an Earth 2.0.”

Kepler is about 60% larger in diameter to the earth but similar in many other ways.
