NASA's Kepler Confirms Its First Planet in Habitable Zone of Sun-like Star: Kepler 22-b
5th December 2011
MOFFETT FIELD, Calif. -- NASA's Kepler mission has confirmed its first planet in the "habitable zone," the region where liquid water could exist on a planet's surface. Kepler also has discovered more than 1,000 new planet candidates, nearly doubling its previously known count. Ten of these candidates are near-Earth-size and orbit in the habitable zone of their host star. Candidates require follow-up observations to verify they are actual planets. - http://www.nasa.gov/centers/ames/news/releases/2011/11-99AR.html
