Scientists discover another Earth-like planet

NASA's Kepler Space Telescope discovered an Earth-like planet orbiting a start within the habitable zone of our galaxy, Kepler-186f, approximately 500 light years away from Earth in the Cygnus constellation.  This habitable zone is the region around a star where planetary-mass objects with sufficient atmospheric pressure can support liquid water at their surfaces.  This discovery is rated the first Earth-sized planet to be found in the habitable zone of another star.

13.7 Billion Years of Cosmic Evolution in 46 Seconds

See a simulation of 13.7 billion years of cosmic evolution in just 46 seconds created by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.With today's technology and power supercomputers, scientists are able to virtually turn back time and simulate these types of formations and growths of galaxies from shortly after the Big Big.  Scientists believe that galaxies begin life as spinning clouds of dust and stars traveling through space.  As these clouds cross paths, they become intertwined and spiral into larger systems.
