    Lightbulb It's Official, Astronomers Have Discovered another Earth!

    It's Official: Astronomers Have Discovered another Earthlike ExoPlanet!

    NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope discovered an Earth-like planet circling a nearby star within the Goldilocks zone of our galaxy. Kepler-186f is around 500 light-years from Earth in the Cygnus constellation.

    The habitable zone, also identified as the Goldilocks zone, is the area around a star within which planetary-mass objects with enough atmospheric pressure can sustain liquid water at their surfaces. While it has been projected that there are at least 40 billion Earth-sized planets circling in our Milky Way Galaxy, this specific finding is labelled the first Earth-sized planet to be discovered in the habitable zone of another star.


    What does this mean?

    We know of only one planet where life survives – Earth. When we hunt for life outside our solar system, we emphasis on discovering planets with features that mimic that of Earth,” said Elisa Quintana, research scientist at the SETI Institute at NASA’s Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, Calif., and lead author of the paper published in the journal Science.
    Discovering a habitable zone planet similar to Earth in size is a major breakthrough.

    The neighboring star to Kepler-186f has half the mass and size as our solar system’s Sun and only gets one-third of the energy that we get from our Sun. Kepler-186f circles its star once every 130 days.

    Target of SETI investigation

    As part of the SETI Institute's search for extraterrestrial intelligence, the Allen Telescope Array had listened for radio emissions from the Kepler-186 system for about a month as of 17 April 2014. No signals attributable to extraterrestrial technology were found in that interval; however, to be detectable such transmissions, if radiated in all directions equally and thus not preferentially towards the Earth, would need to be at least 10 times as strong as those from Arecibo Observatory.

    Another search, undertaken at the crowdsourcing project SETI-Live, reports inconclusive but optimistic-looking signs in the radio noise from the Allen Array observations.

    The more well known SETI @ Home search does not cover any object in the Kepler field of view.

    Another follow-up survey using the Green Bank Telescope has not reviewed Kepler 186f. Given the interstellar distance of 490 light-years (151 pc), the signals would have left the planet many years ago.
    Future technology

    At nearly 582 light-years (178.5 pc) distant, Kepler-186f is too far and its star too faint for current telescopes or the next generation of planned telescopes to determine its mass or whether it has an atmosphere. However, the discovery of Kepler-186f demonstrates conclusively that there are other Earth-sized planets in habitable zones. The Kepler spacecraft focused on a single small region of the sky but next-generation planet-hunting space telescopes, such as TESS and CHEOPS, will examine nearby stars throughout the sky. Nearby stars with planets can then be studied by the upcoming James Webb Space Telescope and future large ground-based telescopes to analyze atmospheres, determine masses and infer compositions. Additionally the Square Kilometer Array would significantly improve radio observations over the Arecibo Observatory and Green Bank Telescope.

    • NASA's Kepler Discovers First Earth-Size Planet In The Habitable Zone:



    Astronomers have discovered the first Earth-size planet orbiting a star in the "habitable zone" -- the range of distance from a star where liquid water might pool on the surface of an orbiting planet. The discovery of Kepler-186f confirms that planets the size of Earth exist in the habitable zone of stars other than our sun.

    • These Are The Sounds Of Kepler Planets 186-F And 62 (And They're Incredibly Creepy):

    • Habitable Exoplanets | In Search of Earth 2.0:

    Thousands of exoplanets have been discovered, only a select few show promise. Here we look at some of the most habitable exoplanets ever discovered ranked through their similarity to Earth. The result is a list of 16 exoplanets that could one say serve as an Earth 2.0

    It's weird how your mind interprets the sounds to sounds that you are familiar with.

    I heard birds, the roar of animals, wind, lol!


    Thinking of sounds I was just reminded of this; I was downtown in a big city when they had a huge fireworks festival. We watched from an apartment building. After it was over, we were sitting in the main room of the apartment and the balcony door was open. There was a strange very loud, weird rumbling sound. I went out to look and it was the sound of all of the 10's of thousands of people walking down the street away from the fireworks area. If people were speaking, you couldn't hear it, because the sounds of the feet on the pavement from so many people drowned out every other sound.

    It was rememberable as it was such a unique sound that I had not heard before or since.

    @PAtient you are not the only one hearing birds haha

    One thing sure, they got BIRDS! over there.
    the first video "These Are The Sounds Of Kepler Planets 186-F And 62 (And They're Incredibly Creepy):" planet 62 it sounds like birds in the jungle, I heard sounds like that many times, it is the same sound.

    Yeah Patient: Tropical rain forest complete with Howler monkeys.
    Maybe in reality it could actually have those sounds coming from life on those planets, maybe one day we will know (if not already hmm)
