In August they added four more to this list. At present, we know of thousands of exoplanets outside of our solar system, and a startling number of these seem to be extremely similar in composition to our own planet Earth. When the discovery of Kepler 452-b was announced in July 2015 its incredible similarity to our planet led to it being dubbed "Earth's cousin". Kepler 438-b lies 470 light years away in the constellation Lyra, and in a total diss to our own solar system it has been described as a cooler version of Venus.Our previous entry, Kepler 438-b, had a score of 0.88 on the Earth Similarity Index. Gliese 581g has a score of 0.89, making it more Earth-like than any other planet we've ever found. Proxima Centauri b is the closest earth-like exoplanet known to mankind, as it orbits within the habitable zone of the red dwarf Proxima Centauri in a triple star system just 4.2 light years away.When Kepler 62-f was discovered in 2013 it was considered of such importance that the US House of Representatives convened to formally discuss further exploration of exoplanets.

Find out where to look for Extraterrestrial Life. What planets are likely to have the right conditions? And what makes Earth special? So far, in this age of planet hunting, we've yet to find anything like our solar system... with rocky inner planets in neat circular orbits, and evenly spaced gas giants on the periphery. Instead, astronomers have glimpsed a diverse planetary zoo, with giant planets in wide orbits around their parent stars, others that swing in so close they leave a comet-like tail, or molten rocky worlds emblazoned with oceans of lava. These finds have added new complexity to theories of how solar systems emerge in the birth of a star. As dust and gas swirl into the newborn star, they form a proto-planetary disk. Within this Frisbee-like structure, gravity sculpts planetary bodies that grow in size, sweeping up smaller bodies that form around them. Current theory holds that giant planets, forming on the periphery, commonly migrate into the inner solar system. This confirms the observation of so-called hot Jupiters orbiting perilously close to their parent stars. But these giants may clear out smaller rocky planets that form close to the star, creating a planetary desert... just where you'd hope to find life. Does that make the search for another Earth a wild goose chase? To find out, a group of planet hunters, using the Keck Telescope in Hawaii, examined a sample of 166 sun-like stars within 80 light years of Earth. To their surprise, they found that as many as a quarter of all sun-like stars should have planets roughly the size of Earth. Now enter the Kepler Space Telescope, launched in March 2009 on a mission to find Earth-like planets. Over a four-month period in 2009, it observed the light of over 150,000 stars, within 3000 light years of Earth. The data showed that at least in one case, the planetary desert is not so barren. The star Kepler 11 is a yellow dwarf similar to our sun. It has at least five planets close enough to be inside the orbit of our Mercury, with a sixth inside the orbit of Venus. There may well be additional planets further out. That won't be known until 2012, when data from longer orbits is complete. Overall, Kepler turned up 58 planets in the so-called habitable zone. Most are large gas planets, but who's to say that some of them don't have moons with liquid water? Think Avatar, Pandora. With a growing planetary database, astronomers are beginning to redefine what it takes to spawn life as we know it. Ideally, astronomers will one day stumble upon a world about the size of Earth, with oceans, an atmosphere, a moon to stabilize its orbit, a robust magnetic field to shelter it from solar winds, and creatures beaming television shows into space that reveal their presence. Until then, the most fertile ground for finding life turns out to be a long-overlooked class of stars. M Stars, or red dwarfs, range from one half to one-twentieth the mass of our sun and make up 76% of all the stars in our galaxy. The most famous is in the southern constellation of Libra, just 20 light years away, called Gliese 581. A team of French and Swiss astronomers had been studying its light from a telescope in the mountains of Chile. They noticed a slight jitter: the gravitational tugging of planets. From this so-called radial velocity, they deduced the presence of Gliese 581B, a planet with sixteen times the mass of Earth. At a distance of only six million kilometers, it's bound to be very hot. Then came planet C, with an orbit of 11 million kilometers. Still too hot. Then there's D, at about 33 million kilometers from its sun. At the outer edge of the star's habitable zone, it receives only 30% of the light that Earth gets from our Sun. Compare it to Mars, where surface temperatures average around --59 degrees Celsius Astronomers suspect that Planet D is an icy world that migrated in from the outer solar system. Red dwarfs are known as "Flare Stars" for the violent eruptions that take place on their surfaces. In 1985, the red dwarf AD Leo erupted with a thousand times more power than the worst solar eruptions. To find out what that would do to a planet in a close orbit, scientists simulated the blast. They found that ultraviolet radiation from the star would split oxygen molecules in the planet's atmosphere, forming ozone. That's could be enough to shield it from harm. Studies like this are prompting scientists to redefine just what they mean by "habitable zone."

If Alien exist where do they live and how do they live? Scientists say a world that's 490 light-years away qualifies as the first confirmed Earth-sized exoplanet that could sustain life as we know it — but in an environment like nothing we've ever seen. The planet, known as Kepler-186f, is "more of an Earth cousin than an Earth twin," Elisa Quintana, an astronomer at the SETI Institute at NASA Ames Research Center, told the journal Science. Quintana is the lead author of a report on the planet published by Science this week. "This discovery does confirm that Earth-sized planets do exist in the habitable zones of other stars," Quintana said during a Thursday news briefing at NASA Headquarters. Kepler-186f goes around an M-type dwarf star that's smaller and cooler than our sun. But it orbits much closer to its parent star than Earth does, within what would be Mercury's orbit in our own solar system. Those two factors combine to produce an environment that could allow for liquid water on the surface, assuming that the planet had a heat-trapping atmosphere. "The star, to our eyes, would look slightly orange-y," about a third again as big as our sun but only a third as bright, said co-author Thomas Barclay, a staff scientist for NASA's Kepler mission who is also affiliated with NASA and the Bay Area Environmental Research Institute. At midday, Kepler-186f's landscape might look similar to what we see on Earth an hour before sunset, he told NBC News. Or it might not: If the planet lacked an atmosphere to retain and redistribute its sun's warmth, it would be a cold, dry, lifeless world. Kepler-186f probably rates as the most potentially Earthlike planet discovered so far, said Jim Kasting, a geoscientist at Penn State University who did not play a role in the Science study. But he told NBC News that it's still "less likely to be habitable than planets around more sunlike stars." Even better prospects for alien habitability might well be identified in the months and years to come. How the world was found Kepler-186f is just the latest discovery to be pulled out of terabytes' worth of data collected by the Kepler mission. Before it went on the fritz last year, the Kepler space telescope stared at more than 150,000 stars in a patch of sky, looking for the telltale dimming of starlight as planets passed over the stars' disks. Nearly 1,000 exoplanets have been confirmed using Kepler data, and almost 3,000 more candidates are still awaiting confirmation. It takes years of observation to confirm the pattern of dimming and brightening that's associated with alien planets, particularly if the planets are small and far from their parent stars. In February, astronomers reported that at least four worlds circled the dwarf star known as Kepler-186 or KOI-571. In this week's Science paper, Quintana and her colleagues confirm the existence of Kepler-186f as the fifth and outermost world. They report that Kepler-186f is about 10 percent wider than Earth, tracing a 130-day orbit around its sun at a mean distance of 0.35 astronomical units. (An astronomical unit is the distance between Earth and our sun, which is 93 million miles or 150 million kilometers.) That would put Kepler-186f on the cooler, outer side of the star's habitable zone — the range of orbital distances where liquid water could exist on a planet's surface. Astronomers have confirmed the existence of other planets in their stars' habitable zone, but those prospects are super-Earth-size. Smaller habitable-zone candidates also have been found, but they have yet to be confirmed as planets. Barclay said Kepler-186f was particularly promising because it's less than 1.5 times the size of Earth. Planets in that size range are more likely to be rocky with a thinner atmosphere, like Earth, Mars and Venus. But worlds exceeding that size stand a better chance of retaining a thick atmosphere of hydrogen and helium, like the giant planet Neptune. "While those planets also could be rocky, they don't remind us of home," Barclay said. Could we actually detect signs of life on Kepler-186f? That's a tough one. The astronomers behind the discovery acknowledge that the planet might be just too far away for follow-up studies. The SETI Institute has been searching for radio signals from the Kepler-186 system over a wide frequency range (1 to 10 GHz), but so far nothing has been detected. (Advexon)

Astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope have conducted the first spectroscopic survey of Earth-sized planets in the TRAPPIST-1 system's habitable zone. Hubble reveals that at least the inner five planets do not seem to contain puffy, hydrogen-rich atmospheres similar to gaseous planets such as Neptune. This means the atmospheres may be more shallow and rich in heavier gases like carbon dioxide, methane, and oxygen.

LATEST EVENTS 2019 (JANUARY 4, 2019) NASA finds new HABITABLE planet which could host ALIEN life. A NEW “habitable” planet has been discovered with the help of rookie scientists using a NASA telescope. Dubbed K2-288Bb, the planet is located 226 light-years away and is roughly twice the size of Earth. For comparison, the furthest manmade object form Earth, Voyager 1, is a mere 0.0018711857452558 light years away — 11 billion miles. But astonishingly, the distant exoplanet orbits a faint red dwarf star within its habitable zone. This means it’s far away enough for it to have water and close enough for it to be a habitable environment for alien life.

Scientists discover Earth-like planet Proxima b :Does the nearest star to our solar system host worlds of its own? 2016 could be the year we find out, as the nearby red dwarf star Proxima Centauri gets scrutinized by astronomers in unprecedented detail using a variety of search methods. One of the most exciting is the Pale Red Dot initiative. Led by the European Southern Observatory (ESO) scientists, Pale Red Dot is a public campaign to examine Proxima Centauri for exoplanets using the radial velocity method, which looks to tease out the signal of an orbiting planet tugging on its host star. 51 Pegasi – the first exoplanet discovered orbiting a Sun-like star in 1995 – was discovered using this method, and hundreds of discoveries that followed.

Here's my comeback after 9 months of not uploading anything! This video took around 7 hours total to make, across Monday through Wednesday. First of all, I must note what Earth Similarity Index (ESI) is. ESI is based off of a planet's stellar flux, mean density, mass, surface gravity and mean radius. Exoplanets with high ESIs tend to be more habitable than other planets. Earth's ESI is 1.0. Also, the planets must be CONFIRMED to be on this list. There are some unconfirmed planets that have high ESIs (i.e. Kapteyn b) that would’ve made the list if they were confirmed. I hope you enjoyed this video. It’s not bad at all this time because I’m better with editing than I used to be and I’m much better with astronomy than any other branch of science.

The astronomers who found it think the planet is rocky and resides within the habitable zone -- close enough to its host star to host liquid water, but not so close the water all evaporates. At just 14 light years away, it's the closest potentially habitable exoplanet. Researchers described the alien world in a new paper, published this week in the journal Astrophysical Journal Letters. "It is a particularly exciting find because all three planets are of low enough mass to be potentially rocky and have a solid surface, and the middle planet, Wolf 1061c, sits within the 'Goldilocks' zone where it might be possible for liquid water -- and maybe even life -- to exist," lead study author, Duncan Wright, an astronomer at the University of New South Wales, said in a press release.

Astronomers announced the discovery of Kepler 22b, a planet orbiting a star not unlike our own sun at a distance where life can thrive. The discovery was announced by a team of astronomers using the Kepler Space Telescope. Launched in 2009, Kepler's sole purpose is to hunt for earth like worlds around other stars. Unlike other telescopes, Kepler stares unblinkingly at a region of the sky in the constellation of Cygnus the Swan. It's 95 megapixel camera monitors 150,000 stars in its field of view. But earth-like planets are impossible to directly image using our best telescopes; they are simply lost in the glare of their parent stars. Instead, Kepler monitors the slightest of changes in brightness of the star as its planet transits in front of it during its orbit. Using this technique, Kepler has discovered 28 exoplanets, and as many as 1500 possible new worlds are awaiting confirmation. Over time, the light from Kepler 22 briefly flickered by 1/2 of 1/1000 of a percent once every 290 days. Astronomers quickly understood that this was a planet within Kepler 22's habitable zone. A habitable zone is a range of distances around a star where the temperature is neither too hot, nor too cold, to support life. A habitable zone around a hotter star would be farther out, while a habitable zone around a cooler star would be closer in. Given any star's temperature, there is an orbit where the temperature is just right for life. Kepler 22b's orbital period places the planet within Kepler 22's habitable zone. The star at Kepler 22 is almost identical to our sun, just 220K cooler, so its habitable zone is slightly closer, making Kepler 22b a strong candidate for finding life. Kepler 22b is 2.4 times the diameter of earth, placing it somewhere between earth and neptune in size. But so far we know nothing else about this world; not its composition, or if it even has an atmosphere inside of which life could survive. To answer these questions, astronomers will need to use different types of telescopes at optical and infrared wavelengths to determine what kind, if any, atmosphere exists at Kepler 22b. At 600 light years away, we will not be able to visit Kepler 22b anytime soon to see for ourselves if life really does exist there. But that hasn't stopped the SETI institute from using the Allen Telescope Array from listening in for any possible artificial signals coming from Kepler 22b...just in case. Meanwhile, the hunt for earthlike worlds continues with the Kepler telescope, and an ever-growing archive of data is being produced. And we need your help sorting through it. Planethunters.org is a site where anyone can log in to examine Kepler's data, and help identify the telltale signal of orbiting planets. Could Kepler 22b really be a second Earth? That remains to be seen. But what is truly remarkable is that we are now able to detect worlds orbiting within stars' habitable zones. Kepler 22b is only the first of many more such worlds surely to be discovered. Life-bearing planets have long been speculated; Kepler 22b is a major step toward knowing they truly exist.

In 1990, at the request of Carl Sagan, Voyager 1 turned and took a picture of Earth from a distance of 6 billion kilometers. This produced the famous “pale blue dot” image of our planet. Several mission concepts are being studied to obtain similar images of Earth-like exoplanets (exo-Earths) around other stars. It is commonly thought that directly imaging a potentially habitable exoplanet requires telescopes with apertures of at least 1 meter, costing at least $1B, and launching no earlier than the 2020s. A notable exception to this is Alpha Centauri (A and B), which is unusually close for a Sun-like star. A ~30-45cm visible light space telescope equipped with a modern high performance coronagraph is sufficient to resolve the habitable zone at high contrast and directly image any potentially habitable planet that may exist in the system. Dr. Belikov will describe the challenges involved with direct imaging of Alpha Centauri planetary systems with a small telescope and how new technologies currently being developed can solve them. He will also show examples of small coronagraphic mission concepts currently being developed to take advantage of this opportunity, and in particular a mission concept called “ACESat: Alpha Centauri Exoplanet Sattellite” submitted to NASA’s small Explorer (SMEX) program in December of 2014.

Habitable Planets Found, NASA Announces Major Space Discovery | TIME https://www.youtube.com/user/TimeMagazine

Using NASA's Kepler Space Telescope, astronomers have discovered the first Earth-size planet orbiting a star in the "habitable zone" -- the range of distance from a star where liquid water might pool on the surface of an orbiting planet. The discovery of Kepler-186f confirms that planets the size of Earth exist in the habitable zone of stars other than our sun. While planets have previously been found in the habitable zone, they are all at least 40 percent larger in size than Earth and understanding their makeup is challenging. Kepler-186f is more reminiscent of Earth. "The discovery of Kepler-186f is a significant step toward finding worlds like our planet Earth," said Paul Hertz, NASA's Astrophysics Division director at the agency's headquarters in Washington. "Future NASA missions, like the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite and the James Webb Space Telescope, will discover the nearest rocky exoplanets and determine their composition and atmospheric conditions, continuing humankind's quest to find truly Earth-like worlds." Although the size of Kepler-186f is known, its mass and composition are not. Previous research, however, suggests that a planet the size of Kepler-186f is likely to be rocky. "We know of just one planet where life exists -- Earth. When we search for life outside our solar system we focus on finding planets with characteristics that mimic that of Earth," said Elisa Quintana, research scientist at the SETI Institute at NASA's Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, Calif., and lead author of the paper published today in the journal Science. "Finding a habitable zone planet comparable to Earth in size is a major step forward." Kepler-186f resides in the Kepler-186 system, about 500 light-years from Earth in the constellation Cygnus. The system is also home to four companion planets, which orbit a star half the size and mass of our sun. The star is classified as an M dwarf, or red dwarf, a class of stars that makes up 70 percent of the stars in the Milky Way galaxy. "M dwarfs are the most numerous stars," said Quintana. "The first signs of other life in the galaxy may well come from planets orbiting an M dwarf." Kepler-186f orbits its star once every 130-days and receives one-third the energy from its star that Earth gets from the sun, placing it nearer the outer edge of the habitable zone. On the surface of Kepler-186f, the brightness of its star at high noon is only as bright as our sun appears to us about an hour before sunset. "Being in the habitable zone does not mean we know this planet is habitable. The temperature on the planet is strongly dependent on what kind of atmosphere the planet has," said Thomas Barclay, research scientist at the Bay Area Environmental Research Institute at Ames, and co-author of the paper. "Kepler-186f can be thought of as an Earth-cousin rather than an Earth-twin. It has many properties that resemble Earth." The four companion planets, Kepler-186b, Kepler-186c, Kepler-186d, and Kepler-186e, whiz around their sun every four, seven, 13, and 22 days, respectively, making them too hot for life as we know it. These four inner planets all measure less than 1.5 times the size of Earth. The next steps in the search for distant life include looking for true Earth-twins -- Earth-size planets orbiting within the habitable zone of a sun-like star -- and measuring the their chemical compositions. The Kepler Space Telescope, which simultaneously and continuously measured the brightness of more than 150,000 stars, is NASA's first mission capable of detecting Earth-size planets around stars like our sun. Ames is responsible for Kepler's ground system development, mission operations, and science data analysis. NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., managed Kepler mission development. Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp. in Boulder, Colo., developed the Kepler flight system and supports mission operations with the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics at the University of Colorado in Boulder. The Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore archives, hosts and distributes Kepler science data. Kepler is NASA's 10th Discovery Mission and was funded by the agency's Science Mission Directorate.

NEW YORK — Private investors Mission Centaur and the BoldlyGo Institute have partnered to launch Project Blue, a plan to build a compact space telescope that has aims of capturing an image of a potential Earth-like exoplanet orbiting the closest star system to us in the Milky Way galaxy. Project Blue’s half-meter-wide telescope is expected to be sent into orbit in roughly three years. It’s high-contrast imaging is designed to take pictures of our closest neighboring star system, Alpha Centauri. Alpha Centauri is 4.37 light years away from our solar system. Scientists estimate there is an 85% probability that Alpha Centauri’s sun-like stars have an Earth-like planet somewhere in their habitable zones. If a planet orbiting within the habitable zones is detected with an atmosphere that could allow liquid water to exist on its surface, it may appear as a blue dot in the telescope. ------------------------------------------------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.
