NASA says new earth-like planet discovered using Kepler space telescope

This NASA artist's concept obtained July 23, 2015 compares Earth (left) to the new planet, called Kepler-452b, which is about 60 percent larger in diameter. Astronomers hunting for another Earth have found what may be the closest match yet, a potentially rocky planet circling its star at the same distance as the Earth orbits the Sun, NASA said July 23, 2015.
