Another planet just like earth found by Astronomers

  • Its rocky surface can hold water

  • Estimated to be rocky like in this planet

  • Light and temperature are almost the same

  • About three hundred light years away from the earth


New Delhi: Another planet like our earth has been found again. The work of exploring the earth’s

alternative has been going on for a long time. It seems to be successful in this endeavor now. A planet

has been seen, which is estimated to be similar to the Earth. NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope holds it.

The initial guess by looking at its structure is that its rocky surface can block water. The place where

this planet is, It is about three hundred light years away from the Earth. Scientists are excited to

understand the structure of this planet even after being at a great distance. Actually, the work of

exploring the Earth was started long back. This work was started by scientists with the idea that in the

event of adverse conditions on earth, life can be transferred elsewhere. Work is also underway to develop

space vehicles of high speed in this direction so that we can reach areas beyond the sun in a very short

time. Only when this method is effective can we think of reaching those areas which are light years away

from Earth. The planet which has been seen with this telescope will now be known as Kepler 1649 C

after it was discovered. This planet was viewed earlier but at that time data on this planet were not

correctly analyzed. Now with the new set of equipments they were analyzed again. Earlier, there was

some disturbance in the calculation of this planet, so there was no more research about it earlier. Now

the information about the achievements of the fresh investigation has been given in a scientific journal.

Kepler’s telescope had identified several planets in that region.

Another planet data were reanalyzed

Now after a re-analysis, this planet has been considered almost like Earth. After the mistake of earlier

calculation about this one planet is caught, the data of other planets of that area is also being analyzed

afresh. Earth’s substitute planet has increased in size by just 0.6 percent from this Earth. It gets light from

the wires present in its surroundings. It is estimated that up to 75 percent of the light the Earth receives

from the Sun is on this planet. Because of this it is also clear that its temperature will be the same as the

Earth. One major difference between the Earth and this planet is that the Earth is revolving around a

living star, the Sun. On the other hand, the planet considered an alternative to Earth is revolving

around a dead star. There is also a danger with this type of red colored dead strings that it never starts

burning and its flames can kill the life of the surrounding areas. But in the initial stages, scientists have

discovered that one year of that planet is equal to 19.5 days of Earth.

Alternative to Earth is at another solar system

Thomas Zurbuchen, director of NASA’s Science Mission, who is involved in research to explore the

Earth, said that it is a pleasure to know that there is a region in this solar system that can be an alternative

to Earth. Along with analyzing the data received from Kepler, all these wires are also being combined

with the data of Tess Satellite. So that a general conclusion can be drawn. Because of this, Kepler 1694C

is being monitored further. Its purpose is to find out more about him. By the way, scientists have made it

clear that these are all preliminary findings and only after further research on this, any concrete result

will be revealed. But with the information that there is a flourishing condition of life there, investigation

has been started whether there is life there or not. Apart from this, planets like Trappist 1F and Teagarden

C have also been found, which are closer to Earth than Kepler 1649C. In all these, the possibility of

becoming an alternative to earth is also being investigated simultaneously.
