Planet like Earth in the habitat, cold star

"Planet like Earth in the habitat, cold star". This is the title in the prestigious scientific journal Science, which published in its issue of the article, which was signed by 23 scientists from 13 research centres in the United States.

To understand what the article says, briefly explain. The famous space Agency NASA from the space telescope "Kepler" recorded at 490 light years from Earth, five planets in the constellation Cygnus, one of which is similar to Earth in many respects. This planet, which got astronomical markings Kepler–189f, size slightly bigger than our planet, namely approximately 10%. Is she safe from its star the distance, it makes the around her your usual "annual turnover" for 130 days. We note here that the radius of the star this planet, as experts suggest, accounts for approximately 50% of the radius of our Sun.

These facts demonstrate vividly that the landscape discovered planet similar to earth, meaning it iron-stone, also there is water at least in the form of ice. But the question is, if there be atmosphere, currently open, since experts don't have those technologies, which would enable to determine the composition of the atmosphere for such long distances.

Therefore, no particular sensations do not exist. "The discovery of Kepler–186f is the beginning of our research, which is devoted to the search for life on other planets. To come to solid data, it is necessary to find and then explore dozens of similar planets that are like Earth. In the milky Way galaxy at the same time such presumably inhabited places can be tens of billions", – experts say.

Discovered the smallest planet
The discovery of the tiny planet was the first evidence in favor of the theory that planets revolving around stars in our galaxy may be much smaller than the planets of our solar system. The existence of the planet Kepler 37-b, nearest to the star Kepler-37 planets three planets, was confirmed in the journal Nature. "The fact that we found one of these small, and therefore difficult to detect planets, indicates their prevalence around other stars, and is

Space telescope Kepler discovered close to Earth billions of her twins
New data astronomical satellite NASA "Kepler" testify about billions of earth-like planets that are much closer than could have imagined scientists. "The information that we publish today, will delight a wide audience, as we found that the nearest earth-like world is within 13 light-years from the Sun," said astronomer Courtney Dressing. "Astronomically speaking, 13 light years

Near 22% of the stars discovered a habitable planet
Potentially habitable Earth-like exoplanet is present in the system almost every fifth star in the Galaxy. This was stated by Eric Petigara astronomers Andrew Howard and Geoffrey Marcy, has published their information in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS). According to scientists, 22% of sunlike stars have in their system the planet size similar to Earth, orbiting its star at a distance quite acceptable to have temperature conditions, suitable for existence
