Earth 2.0?

POSTED BY: ARIELANBAR
 


A new study suggests that a rocky planet orbiting a star 36 light years away – not far at all by cosmic standards – could be habitable. This world is about 3.6 times more massive than the Earth and sits within the “habitable zone” of its sun. Pretty neat finding by Lisa Kaltenegger and colleagues.
