A team of researchers have discovered two planets that look like Earth and are very close to the solar system. They are in the ideal position for the water to remain liquid, allowing life to multiply.
Zing led Space.com said that these two planets orbit a star called “Teegarden”, located 12.5 light years from Earth, and named Teegarden B and Teegarden C.
“These two planets are like planets in our solar system,” said lead researcher Mathias Zechmeister – researcher at the Institute for Astrophysics at the University of Göttingen, Germany.
“They are only slightly heavier than Earth, located in areas where water exists in liquid form and where humans can live,” he added.
