HOUSTON, TX – Nasa scientists have found a new planet, more closely resembling earth than any planet out there. The earthly twin, or distant cousin, is called Kepler 186F.

It’s bigger than earth and located close enough to a star that its temperatures could allow water to flow and you know what that means, we may not be alone.

Captains log 4118-14, the ship is on course to Kepler 186F. Located approximately 490 light years away from our solar system. Our mission on Kepler 186F, search for life forms and measure atmospheric density. Leaving one question, if there is life on Kepler 186F and the planet been there for billions of years, what`s already there?
