Kepler-452b (a planet sometimes quoted to be an Earth 2.0 or Earth’s Cousin based on its characteristics; known sometimes as Coruscant by NASA, also known by its Kepler Object of Interest designation KOI-7016.01) is an exoplanet orbiting the Sun-like star Kepler-452 about 1,402 light-years (430 pc) from Earth in the constellation Cygnus.
It was identified by the Kepler space telescope, and its discovery was announced by NASA on 23 July 2015. However, a study in 2018 by Mullally et al. implied that statistically, Kepler-452b has not been proven to exist and must still be considered a candidate. It is the first potentially rocky super-Earth planet discovered orbiting within the habitable zone of a star very similar to the Sun.
The planet is about 1,400 light-years
away from our Solar System.
At the speed of the New Horizons spacecraft,
about 59,000 km/h (37,000 mph),
it would take approx. 26 million years to get there.
No, there is no back-up to our beautiful Blue Planet yet!
