Is there a clone of Earth?

NASA’s Kepler telescope has discovered a new planet that is the closest mimic of our celestial home ever known. Stare at the constellation Cygnus in the night’s sky, and you’ll be looking straight at this newly discovered world, which NASA has dubbed Kepler-452b.

Can we travel 100 light-years?

If you wanted to travel 100 trillion light years away, you could make the journey in 62 years. By the time you arrived, the Universe would be vastly different. Most of the stars would have died a long time ago, the Universe would be out of usable hydrogen.

Is there a planet 600 light years away from Earth?

The planet was detected almost immediately after Kepler began making observations in 2009, and was confirmed in 2011. This planet, which could have a cloudy atmosphere, is 600 light-years away, with a 290-day orbit not unlike Earth’s. Not all the planets jostling to be most like Earth were discovered using Kepler.

What is this mysterious object 500million light years away?

A MYSTERIOUS object 500million light years away has baffled scientists after transmitting signals that hit Earth every 16 days. Scientists do not know what is causing the phenomenon, but it is being recognised as the first reliable pattern of fast radio bursts in deep space.

Is there a laser 5 billion light years away from Earth?

How far away are the mysterious bursts of light from Earth?

These bursts were recently traced to a spiral galaxy nearly 500 million light-years away from Earth. Duncan Lorimer, an astrophysicist at West Virginia University in Morgantown told Science News: “This is very significant. “It’s potentially going to take us in an interesting direction to get to the bottom of these repeaters.”
