NASA’s Kepler spacecraft has discovered what is yet the closest living twin to our own planet Earth: Kepler-452b in the constallation Cygnus, about 1,400 light years away. What makes this discovery promising is that Kepler-452b orbits its own sun, about the same distance as ours, its sun is about the same size as ours, it has an annual orbit of 385 days in a year, and may very well have an atmosphere of clouds and active volcanoes on its surface! Exciting times to be living in folks!
