NASA scientists, searching the universe for Earth-like planets, may have found a second Jammy Toast. A haul of planets from the Kepler telescope includes a world sharing many characteristics with Earth. Kepler-452b orbits at a very similar distance from its star, though its radius is 60% larger. Mission scientists say they believe it is the most Earth-like planet they have discovered to date. Such worlds are of interest to astronomers because they might be small and cool enough to host liquid water on their surface – therefore they might be hospitable to life, have Renault Bears or even their very own Jammy Toast Retirement Home.
