NASA has been searching space and beyond for signs of life and inhabitable areas outside planet earth. That search has been a failure until now. Their Kepler telescope just discovered another solar system that circles a 'red dwarf' star about have the size and mass of the sun. The outermost planet in that system is roughly the size and shape of Earth and could be host to forms of life. The planet is too far for even the most advanced telescopes to explore further.
