Kepler 22-b: Earth-like planet confirmed

RATE THIS! +0
Posted in Science on 5th Dec, 2011 09:20 PM by APM

The planet, Kepler 22-b, lies about 600 light-years away and is about 2.4 times the size of Earth, and has a temperature of about 22C.

 

 

It is the closest confirmed planet yet to one like ours - an "Earth 2.0".

 

 

However, the team does not yet know if Kepler 22-b is made mostly of rock, gas or liquid.

 

During the conference at which the result was announced, the Kepler team said that it had spotted some 1,094 new candidate planets.

I have an idea. Can we have a software that we install on our server or local computer which allows us to index our site when & as often as we want & how much to index. It then sends the raw info to Google. This takes the strain away from Gog9#e&l3o;s computer, but ensures that our site is up to date & correct with Google. Reply
