The Kepler Space Telescope team has confirmed the existence of an Earth-like planet 600 light-years away.

Kepler 22-b is about 2.4 times the size of Earth, with a temperature of around 72 degrees fahrenheit. Astronomers say it’s the closest confirmed planet to one like ours.

Although the planet is in the “habitable zone” — it’s 15% closer to its star than the Earth is to the sun — astronomers haven’t yet determined whether it’s made of rock, gas or liquid.

Kepler 22-b is one of 2,236 “candidate” planets discovered by the Kepler space telescope, but it’s the first to be independently confirmed as Earth-like. 207 other candidate planets are roughly Earth-sized

Our future home? O:
eh who am I kidding, I'll be dead by then~
