Reported on July 23, 2015, planet Kepler-452b is bigger than Earth and circles a star almost indistinguishable to the sun, yet more established and subsequently have a high degree of heat. The planet’s trajectory is almost the same as Earth’s, and its year speaks the truth 20 days longer than Earth’s. Kepler-452b is 1,400 light-years away.

“Kepler-452b is 60 percent larger in diameter than Earth and is considered a super-Earth-size planet. While its mass and composition are not yet determined, previous research suggests that planets the size of Kepler-452b have a good chance of being rocky”- NASA.

Revelation of Kepler 452b could propel in the quest for life on different universes. After other such universes are discovered, astronomers could focus on these regions in the quest for radio waves or indications of life covered up in science.
