Are we at a point in history where we can say, there is the life on other Earth like planets? For decades now scientists have been searching for other Earth like planets beyond our solar system and now they have come across one. Kepler-186f is a planet that’s remarkably similar to ours.
NPR tells us that Kepler 186f orbits its star every 130 days and is about 10% bigger then Earth;
“At least in our solar system, Earth-sized planets are made of rock and iron and gas, says Quintana, “so we can guess that Kepler-186f, being so close in size to Earth, has a high probability of being rocky also and composed of those sorts of materials.”
Tomorrow (April 22nd) is Earth Day so, let’s hope scientist continue to search for Earth-like planets and perhaps we’ll learn more about the future of ours.
