Earth 2

Who discovered it? In July 2015 the NASA announced that they had discovered an alien planet that is very similar to Earth. So similar, in fact, tht it has been called Earth 2.

What is the discovery about?The actual name of the planet is Kepler-452b and it is 60% larger than the Earth. Earth 2 could have liquid water flowing accross it, meaning that some sort of alien life may exist on its surface.

What is it important for the future?Scientists also think that even if there was no alien life there, this planet may one day, in the far future be a great candidate for humans to colonise it.
