Second “Earth” is found - level 1
Scientists use a telescope. This telescope is called the Kepler telescope. It is powerful.
The scientists find a planet with it. The planet is 1,400 light years away. The planet is called Kepler-452. It is 60 per cent bigger than Earth.
The planet moves around a star. This star is like our sun. The planet is at a good distance from the star. There can be liquid water on the planet. Maybe, life exists on the planet.
Difficult words: telescope (a thing for looking at stars and planets), distance (the space between two things; how far something is), liquid (when something is like water—it is not ice and it is not gas).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
