List astrophysicsman's Instagram NASA had announced the discovery of a new Earth-like planet orbiting the star Kepler-452 around 1,400 light years away in the constellation Cygnus. The planet has been designated Kepler-452b. The above image is an artists impression. 
What's amazing about this planet is that it's the first Earth-like planet found around a G-type star, the same type of star as our sun. Kepler-452b also orbits within its stars habitable zone, the distance around its star where water can exist in liquid form, an essential ingredient for life. So far scientists know that Kepler-452b is about 60% larger than Earth, making it a super-Earth. The mass and composition of Kepler-452b remains unknown, although scientists say it's more than likely that the planet is rocky. Kepler-452b orbits its star every 385 days and is located about 5% farther from its star than Earth. The parent star of Kepler-452b is about 10% larger and 20% brighter than our sun. The star is about 6 billion years old, making it 1.5 billion years older than our sun. It remains unknown whether or not Kepler-452b has the conditions needed for life to arise, however, the age of the system is 6 billion years, so the conditions needed for life, and life, have a very long time to arise.

List astrophysicsman's Instagram The image above is an image of a planet near Beta Pictoris, discovered using direct imaging. Another method for detecting exoplanets is direct imaging. Although this method isn't used very often, and our current technology isn't quite advanced enough to use this method to its full potential. 
Stars are extremely bright, and planets are very dim. This simple fact is what's stoping us from directly imaging most planets. Any light reflected from a planet is lost in the intense glare of the star. The only planets we have actually been able to directly image are relatively large gas giants that orbit at a fair distance from their parent star. These are still extremely hard to detect using direct imaging, so astronomers usually detect these planets from their thermal emissions. It's much easier to obtain an image of a planet that orbits a star relatively close to the Sun and if the planet is quite large (larger than Jupiter) it makes it even easier, although it is still quite difficult. 
Coronagraphs are used to directly image exoplanets. A coronagraph is a telescope attachment that is used to block most of a stars light thus making other object around the star visible, particularly planets. Although most coronagraphs are used in studying the Sun, a new class of similar instruments known as stellar coronagraphs will be used to directly image exoplanets, hopefully in the near future.

List astrophysicsman's Instagram The above image is an artists impression of Kepler 186f. 
If we want to find more complex forms of life we may have to leave the solar system and go deeper into space. If we search for life elsewhere in the universe where do we look? An ideal place to look would be a planet similar to Earth. Why? Because life arose and evolved on Earth. So obviously the conditions on Earth are ideal for life. So our first step to finding more complex life in the universe is to find other planets where it could potentially live. This is the goal of the Kepler space telescope. Kepler was designed to detect exoplanets using the transit method. It has been extremely successful. With thousands of potential planets, many of which orbit in their stars habitable zone. Some famous examples of Earth-like planets beyond the solar system are Kepler 186f, Kepler 22b, Kepler 62f, Kapteyn b and others. This is the first step to finding alien life. Find an area it could potentially exist. To know more follow me now☺.

List astrophysicsman's Instagram The study of exoplanets, planets beyond the solar system, is a fairly new area of scientific study. One of the primary goals of studying exoplanets is to find a world similar to Earth. And I think that this topic captures the publics imagination and interest like nothing else. No matter who you are we have all wondered about this question: are we alone in the universe?

Since the discovery of the first exoplanet in 1996, scientists have found thousands more. The majority of which are gas giants, many of which have masses higher than Jupiter. It's only been in the past few years that astronomers have begun to discover Earth-like worlds around other stars. The first confirmed planet to orbit in the habitable zone of its parent star was Kepler-22b, discovered in 2011. Kepler-22b, however, belongs to a new class of planet called a super-earth. As the name suggests, these planets are much larger than Earth, although it's still possible that they are habitable. However, there has been some debate about the composition of Kepler-22b. Some scientists believe that it's actually a mini-Neptune rather than a super-earth. Others believe that it's a rocky world covered in a global ocean. It may remain unknown forever which is true. 
The discovery of Kepler-22b was only the beginning. More Earth-like worlds have been discovered since then, some of which are much better candidates than Kepler-22b. One such planet, discovered in 2013, was Kepler-62f, a super-earth located in the habitable zone of the star Kepler-62 around 1,200 light years away in the constellation Lyra. Kepler-62f is considered to be one of the best candidates for another Earth. Kepler-62f wasn't the end. More exoplanets were soon discovered which may even be better candidates.

List astrophysicsman's Instagram How many stars do you count? ✨
While some of the colours in this frame have been enhanced and tweaked during the process of creating the image from the observational data, different stars do indeed glow in different colours. Stars differ in colour according to their surface temperature: very hot stars are 🔵 or ⚪️, while cooler stars are 🔴. They may be cooler because they are smaller, or because they are very old and have entered the red giant phase, when an old star expands and cools dramatically as its core collapses.

List astrophysicsman's Instagram We like to sometimes think that we're unique or special, and that our world is a one of a kind. This idea, however, is misguided. Our Earth may not be so unique, and in fact, there is very likely a large number of worlds in our galaxy that are similar to it. 
In 2009 NASA launched the Kepler Space Telescope. Kepler was tasked with finding planets around other stars, called exoplanets. It does this by measuring the dip in a stars brightness as a planet passes in front of its parent star. The amount of dimming in a stars light can help astronomers determine the size of the planet, its mass, its orbital period, and its distance from its star. Although most planets found by Kepler are Neptune to Jupiter sized planets, it has found several Earth-sized planets that orbit in the habitable zone of their parent star. It's important to remember that just because a planet is located in the habitable zone does not guaranty habitable. The habitable zone is simply the region around a star where water can exist in liquid form given sufficient atmospheric pressure. Kepler has so far detected several planets located in this region. Fortunately, Kepler has found enough planets that in 2013, astronomers were able to estimate just how many Earth-sized planets orbiting in the habitable zone there should be in our galaxy. The number is mind blowing! Our galaxy could contain as many as 40 billion Earth-sized planets located inside of habitable zones, 11 billion of which are estimated to orbit sun-like stars. And that's just our galaxy. Remember that the universe contains hundreds of billions of other galaxies beyond our own.
