Astronomers discover star and planet strikingly similar to the earth

Scientists have found a potentially habitable exoplanet and its star that are more similar to the Earth and our Sun than any other known planet-star pair.

The planet – which is still considered a planet candidate until further confirmation – is the right distance from its star to allow for the presence of liquid surface water. That means it could potentially host life.

"It's the combination of this less-than-double the size of the Earth planet and its solar type host star that make it so special and familiar," René Heller, the lead author of the new study, said in a press release.

For now, the planet candidate is known as KOI-456.04. If its existence is confirmed by other telescopes, the exoplanet would join a group of about 4,000 known planets outside our Solar System.

The new finding came after astronomers reexamined archived data from the Kepler Space Telescope, which NASA retired in October 2018.

If KOI-456.04's atmosphere is like Earth's – meaning it has a mild greenhouse effect – then its average surface temperature would be about 5 degrees Celsius, compared to Earth's average of 15 degrees Celsius, according to the Max Planck Institute.

Oh wow! Extraterrestrials will be here by year’s end! After what’s happened so far in 2020, even the most far-fetched things like extraterrestrial life don’t seem as impossible as I once thought.

That's just an artist's impression, it could have zero water and look like Mars for all we know.
