First potentially habitable Earth-sized planet confirmed by Gemini and Keck observatories
"What makes this finding particularly compelling is that this Earth-sized planet, one of five orbiting this star, which is cooler than the Sun, resides in a temperate region where water could exist in liquid form," says Elisa Quintana of the SETI Institute and NASA Ames Research Center who led the paper published in the current issue of the journal Science. View News Article (2014-04-18)


Astronomers discover Earth-sized planet in habitable zone
Notre Dame astrophysicist Justin R. Crepp and researchers from NASA working with the Kepler space mission have detected an Earth-like planet orbiting the habitable zone of a cool star. View News Article (2014-04-18)


First Earth-Size Planet Is Discovered in Another Star's
A team of astronomers that includes Penn State scientists has discovered the first Earth-size planet orbiting a star in the "habitable zone" -- the distance from a star where liquid water might pool on the surface of an orbiting planet. View News Article (2014-04-18)


Astronomers: 'Tilt-a-worlds' could harbor life
