Earth’s Exoplanet Twin

A newly-found world.
Outside our solar system.
An exoplanet.
Three hundred light years away.

About this poem

EARTH’S LOOK-ALIKE PLANET: As reported earlier, on March 5, 2022, using observations from the Kepler Space Telescope, NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) announced its discovery of another Earth-like planet that is nearly the size as Earth, and which, within an habitable sphere, orbits its own Sun-star’s zone. This habitable exoplanet displays ample surface liquid water, as well as having estimated regular temperatures sustainable for human life and wellbeing. This newly-found Earth-like planet, “Kepler-1649c,” is named after Johannes Kepler (1571-1630), one of the most significant representatives of the so-called Scientific Revolution of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Nota Bene: All the galaxies may be mirror images of one another; all together to form a composite whole.
