POSSIBLE VENUS TWIN DISCOVERED AROUND DIM STAR
Astronomers using NASA’s Kepler space telescope have found a planet 219 light-years away that seems to be a close relative to Venus. This newly discovered world is only slightly larger than Earth, and orbits a low-temperature star called Kepler-1649 that’s one-fifth the diameter of our Sun.

SETI Institute observes Trappist-1, the Star with many Earth-like planets
Three of the planets in the Trappist-1 system are believed to be in the “habitable zone” for life: close enough to their star to melt ice but not so close that all the water evaporates. In other words, these planets might have liquid water at their surfaces.
