NASA find life on other planet?

Well... not exactly. But they did find a planet that has the ability to do so. NASA's planet-hunting telescope named Kepler has found a planet 600 light years away. To put that length in a little more understandable distance it takes light 1.3 seconds to travel from the Earth to the Moon. So, the planet is really really really far away. The telescope has discovered over 2,000 planets in its 13 months of searching so far. About 1,000 of those seem to be a fairly good planet that could someday have life. Maybe there is hope for us to find aliens some day? Who knows.

To find out more about this planet here is a Yahoo! article
