Scientists have finally discovered an Earthlike planet that may host life. And how far is it from us? It's merely 150 million light years away.
It's a warm climate much like that of Earth, the proper states for having liquid water plus a glowing star just like the sun nearby. And also the reason it is called Super Earth is as it's 1.5 times bigger than our planet Earth. So what's going to show us whether there is alien life on Super-Earth K2-3d?
There's without doubt about that." The James Webb Space Telescope is Nasa's successor to the Hubble telescope, which is launched in 2018.
Nasa's Kepler space telescope first found the Super-Earth K2-3d. Hubble telescope will now analyse K2 3d, which lies outside our solar system. Its host star is a tiny red star known as 'EPIC 201367065' which it orbits every 45 days.
- All regarding the Super-Earth K2-3d:
- It is 1.5 times as big as Earth
- It orbits a red star called 'EPIC 201367065.'
- It was found by the Kepler space telescope of Nasa
- It truly is about 150 million light-years away from Earth
- It has similar warm weather and right conditions to host water like Earth
- Aliens could inhabit it
Next year the eclipse is placed to take place, and it is being geared up for by astronomers. They'll use large telescopes to see whether the planet's atmosphere sustains life and look for molecules like oxygen and nitrogen.
Japan's Okayama Astrophysical Observatory has a team of scientists that have made it possible to examine the Super-Earth K2-3d in great detail. When the Super Star is backlit through the eclipse, any observations they'll make will be.
