A Newly Discovered Planet That is Bigger Than Earth And Also Habitable Like Earth

#Discoveries
Left: The newly discovered planet
Right: Earth 

This is really unimaginable but at the same time, God is the King of all mysteries and little by little He reveals these mysteries to us all. 

The Earth orbit its stars 365 days a year while this planet orbit its stars 385 days a year. The name of the planet is Kepler-452b and according to CNN it is 60% larger than the earth we live in. It is located in an habitable zone in its star and where it is located people can live there, that is there is ''life-sustaining liquid water is possible on the surface of the planet''. 

Kepler-452b is said to be ''1400 lit years from Earth in the constellation Cygnus''. 

''A visitor there would experience gravity about twice that of Earth's, and planetary scientists say the odds of it having a rocky surface are "better than even."

While it's a bit farther from its star than Earth is from the sun, its star is brighter, so the planet gets about the same amount of energy from its star as Earth does from the sun. And that sunlight would be very similar to Earth's, Jenkins said.

The planet "almost certainly has an atmosphere," Jenkins said, although scientists can't say what it's made of. But if the assumptions of planetary geologists are correct, he said, Kepler-452b's atmosphere would probably be thicker than Earth's, and it would have active volcanoes.
