NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope data shows possibility of Earth Size planet just 13 light years from Earth

 

Written by Whitney Clavin
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – Using publicly available data from NASA’s Kepler space telescope, astronomers at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics estimate that six percent of red dwarf stars in the galaxy have Earth-size planets in the “habitable zone,” the range of distances from a star where the surface temperature of an orbiting planet might be suitable for liquid water.

The majority of the sun’s closest stellar neighbors are red dwarfs. Researchers now believe that an Earth-size planet with a moderate temperature may be just 13 light-years away.

Astronomers estimate that six percent of red dwarfs have a temperate Earth-size planet, as close as 13 light-years away. (Image credit: D. Aguilar/Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics)
