A recent planetary discovery brings hope of life on another world. NASA scientists have researched a planet called Kepler-452b that is the planet most like Earth ever recorded, but bigger and older. It’s the first earth-like planet found within the “Goldilocks Zone,” where the conditions have to be just right in order for life to form. The finding of Kepler-452b could further our search for life on worlds outside our own.
