A new exoplanet was found, which can become the “second land”

The NASA agency has officially announced the detection of exoplanets with a cosmic telescope with the Earth’s Land Semi index (ESI) 0.83. In terms of similarity with the cradle of mankind, it takes sixth place among the more than 1900 exoplanets known to science. The uniqueness of the planet is that it is located in the zone of inhabitability of the yellow dwarf system very similar to the solar, and most importantly the analysis of the obtained data indicates the presence of water in the liquid phase on it.

The Kepler-452 B exoplanet has been removed from the Earth by 1402 light years and the older planet for one and a half billion years. Its diameter is 63 % more than the earth, and the mass exceeds this indicator of our planet by 4.7 times. Gravity on it is more than earthly 1.76 times. The detection of a new planet confirms the hypothesis put forward by a group of Danish and Australian astronomers in the winter of 2015 about the multiplicity of the earth -type planets located outside our solar system.

Scientists hope that the study of this exoplanet will help predict the development of the Earth in the future. Seth Shostak from the SETI Institute, is engaged in the search for any activity in the radiodiapas from this planet, but so far the result is negative.
