Traveling to Other Galaxies The Search for Earth like Alien Planets – Space Documentary

There are even more potentially habitable planets near Earth than we ever imagined. A research team discovered two Earth-like planets in our cosmic backyard, and they’re located in the perfect zone for water to form on their presumably rocky surfaces.

The planets orbit a sun known as “Teegarden’s star,” which is only 12.5 light-years from Earth. (A light-year is the distance that light travels in a year, or roughly 6 trillion miles or 10 trillion kilometers.) The two planets look an awful lot like Earth and our neighboring worlds, the researchers said.

“The two planets resemble the inner planets of our solar system,” lead author Mathias Zechmeister, a research scientist at the Institute for Astrophysics at the University of Göttingen in Germany, said in a statement. “They are only slightly heavier than Earth and are located in the so-called habitable zone, where water can be present in liquid form.”
