In case you missed it, scientists manning the Kepler Telescope are getting closer and closer to find a world occupied by alien life. As of right now, the telescope is struggling to find planets of Earth-size, but that’s not to say that it may have already found planets that are Earth‘s twin…just bigger.

Earlier this week it was announced that a large planet was the first confirmed planet to be orbiting around a star like our Sun and within the “habitable zone.” Other then that, not much else is known about the planet, but the discover was apparently enough to spark the interest of SETI scientists as they have now announced that they will begin searching this planet and other in their search to find alien transmissions from space.

Who knows if they will be successful, but narrowing down the field to planet know to be circling Sun-like stars and at a distance conducive to life can’t hurt.
