    NASA Discovers Inhabitable Planets

    They are pretty far away..
    The article I read last night referred to the one planet as Kepler -22..but this article makes no mention of that name and refers to the two planets differently.

    NASA has been focusing its deep space telemetry from Kepler on bodies in the "Habitable Zone".

    The main importance of that zone is the ability to sustain liquid water, although liquid water also exists outside the so-called "Habitable Zone" it's most "life-friendly" form is inside this zone.

    So, Kepler uses a small optical lens to constantly monitor the brightness of stars it surveys and when it finds data that indicates a world is about the same distance from its star as the Earth is from our own (1 AU +- a few), the world is probably the right temperature to hold liquid water on a fairly stable basis.

    A lot of these worlds might still not even have an atmosphere or maybe have no magnetosphere, meaning the world is heavily radiated.

    Water, on the other hand, is very common throughout the Universe, so the chances of it happening to find itself on a planetoid with an atmosphere right in the Habitable Zone should happen relatively often, given the size of things.

    Lots of variables have to come together to support our perception of carbon-based life, but the variables themselves are relatively simple and from the data so far, common as well.

    Oh funny mention, some people like to call the Habitable Zone the "Goldilocks zone"...not to hot, not too cold.

    They don't get out much, astronomers.

    I think this is more awesome than the general Internet response has been.

    Hey Wabbit -realistically, how long do you think it will take for the folks at NASA to determine whether the planets in question have an atmosphere similar to our own and whether they habitable or not ?
    Exactly how far away are these planets ?

    Light year, 10 trillion kilometers (6 trillion miles) So, the closest one is only a mere 120,000,000,000,000 miles from earth.
