Scientists Confirm Existence of Earth-Like Planet Kepler-22b

Kepler 22b is 2.4 times larger than earth but in the right orbit to have a warm surface of around 72 degrees F. If it has a rocky surface, it may have water and life. We are closing in on finding other earths out there in the galaxy and eventually life. Kepler has found well over 1,000 planets so far. How many of you remember when nobody knew IF there were planets outside our solar system. If you are hard core, you can go to YouTube and find the NASA news briefing on this find, which takes over an hour to watch. This is also a Kepler milestone, 1,000 days in operation for Kepler. Congrats Kepler crew.
