A Second Earth

Kepler-22b. That’s the name of the exoplanet that NASA’s Kepler spacecraft has discovered. What’s so fascinating about this exoplanet is that like our Earth, Kepler-22b orbits in a similar solar system as ours and is believed to hold liquid water. What’s more, scientists believe that the overall temperate on Kepler-22b is a comfortable 72 degrees.
