Scientists using the Kepler telescope has discovered eight planets. Two of them are similar to Earth, which greatly attracted the attention of astronomers. Both planets are in the habitable zone.
Kepler-438b and Kepler-442b have similar Land size revolve around young stars. It is possible that the planets have water. Star Kepler-438b and Kepler-442b colder than our sun.
Assume there is life on planets or not, is difficult. Scientists plan to study Kepler-442b, it has more prospects in this regard. The planet receives 70% of the amount of energy that earth receives from the Sun. Astronomers believe that the chance of the existence of life on the planet is up to 97%.
Information about the discovery was published in the edition of the Times. Astronomical satellite Kepler increased the number of planets similar to Earth, twice. Usually these planets have similar sizes and conditions. However, the presence or absence of life on them very difficult to judge. Today we know 4175 planets where life is possible in one of its known forms.
