Kepler-452b: All the Memes You Need to See

NASA says it has found a possibly habitable planet during its Kepler mission, nicknamed "Earth 2.0." Kepler-452b is the smallest planet to date found in the habitable zone (the area around a star where liquid water could pool on the surface of an orbiting planet) of a G2-type star, which is like our sun.

“On the 20th anniversary year of the discovery that proved other suns host planets, the Kepler exoplanet explorer has discovered a planet and star which most closely resemble the Earth and our Sun,” John Grunsfeld, associate administrator of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate at the agency’s headquarters in Washington said in a press release. “This exciting result brings us one step closer to finding an Earth 2.0.”
