Newly-found habitable Exoplanet – NASA

Scientists have discovered nearly 4,000 planets outside our solar system where the same chemical conditions that may have prompted life on Earth exist.

Next-generation telescopes, such as NASA’s TESS and James Webb Telescopes, will hopefully be able to identify and potentially characterise many more planets that lie within the abiogenesis zone, according to the researchers.

The exoplanet also orbits inside the “Goldilocks” or “habitable” zone with temperatures at the right level to permit liquid surface water.The newly-found habitable planet was found by NASA’s Kepler telescope.
