Besides that the NASA call this a major milestone in their quest to find Earth's twin.
They say they've discovered a planet that has so that's what they do -- Manson look for twins.
-- Almost -- all the right conditions to support life this planet we're told they spotted it using that.
Kepler space telescope which you paid for they say -- launched three years ago to look for new planets and sure enough found one.
Here's what we're told it's a new planet about two and a half times the size of births of -- -- when they missed.
It orbits a star that's a lot like -- own son whatever that means scientists predict the average surface temperature could be a very comfortable 72 degrees Fahrenheit.
If there's a greenhouse effect there.
It's about 600 light years away from births are talking about it is kind of ridiculous.
In other words you and I will not be able to ever visited joining us now is Jeremy Kaplan is the science and technology editor at the Fox News.
Dot com okay -- its two and a half times the size of this place what makes.
Similar what makes -- -- that it lies within this specific region of space just far enough away from the sun and it's orbiting -- called the habitable zone.
Meaning it's probably got what it is a very good chance that it could have water.
So it's potentially got my daughter of it kind of looks like our planet doesn't play out of the water who have a different color but maybe you know maybe they're setting -- off.
Doesn't keep in mind here we have these Ricans beat these these drawings basically what they think it could look like no oil.
All that they've seen is this much.
They have this telescope staring out of this one region of space for sixteen long months unblinking it's like a staring contest.
And because it's been looking so long it can detect points when the stars that -- staring at.
Our legal black and they think because there's something that there it was a smudge they think that that's evidence -- play.
And based on all the calculations in the -- at the after physicists can do.
They think it lies just just this rights but it's just this size -- 72 degrees -- Colorado alliance boots on the generously doing.
I don't understand how they came up with this picture though I mean.
They just made it up in -- and went to little optimistic with the -- be honest I guess NASA needs to stay relevant doesn't.
They had to keep trying.
Yeah this is fantastic on the potential for life out there a lot of a lot of the -- been saying this is just more evidence that we probably live in a universe crowded with life.
This is the kind of place where we find it when they go -- fixes problems we have.
I think I read they found a Bill Black holed.
They found to be -- black hole like bigger than any black hole we've ever seen some fantastically gigantic it's been a couple days of remarkable space story so.
But you know pictures of the black hole because of course -- -- black going to get the.
Volcanic committee make one up for that did that I didn't even track.
