Another Planet Earth?!

Nasa has just found a planet that is just like Earth, but bigger.  The Kepler space telescope has found 2,326 potential Earth-like planets, which seems like a lot to me, but this one has gotten the men in suits excited.  Kepler-22b is 600 light years away and about 2.3 times bigger than Earth.  Although scientists can’t tell what the surface is like yet, they do know that the temperature is a balmy 70 degrees.  They’ve even gone so far as to call it “Earth’s Twin.”

Oooo Ooo Ooo.  I just know they’re going to find life out there.
