Most earth-like planet possibly foundWith a radius that is just 1.5 times that of Earth, the potential planet is what a so-called ‘super-Earth,’ meaning it is just slightly larger than the Earth. The candidate planet orbits a star similar to the sun at a distance that falls within the ‘habitable zone’ — the region where liquid water could exist on the planet’s surface. Scientists say the planet, if confirmed, could be a prime candidate to host alien life.
