Najmtek changes the way users interact with their technology as they participate in and contribute to the world. The only limitation is the user’s imagination.

NASA Astronomers found two Earth-like planets

A team of scientists, including NASA Scientists, but also Carnegie’s Alan Boss, has discovered two Earth-like planets in the habitable orbit of a Sun-like star, 1,200 light years away, which could potentially host human life. Their work is published in Science Express.

NASA LOGOUsing observations gathered by NASAs Kepler Mission, the team, led by William Borucki of the agency’s Ames Research Center, found five planets orbiting a Sun-like star called Kepler-62. Two of the five planets found are squarely in what astronomers call the habitable zone — not too hot, not too cold and possibly bearing water, researchers said in the journal Science.

These two are our best candidates that might be habitable,” said William Borucki, Kepler science principal investigator at NASA’s Ames Research Center.

According to William Borucki, the two planets Kepler-62-e and Kepler-62-f are slightly wider than Earth, but not too big.

Kepler-62-e is about 40 percent larger than Earth and a bit toasty, like a Hawaiian world. Kepler-62-f is about 60 percent larger than our planet, and orbits its star every 267 days, close to Earth’s annual trajectory of 365 days. It is also a bit nippy, more Alaskan.

Scientists do not yet know if their surfaces are rocky or watery, or if they have atmospheres that could sustain life. But their location and size suggest they “could plausibly be composed of condensable compounds and be solid, either as a dry, rocky super-Earth or one composed of a significant amount of water,” said the study.
