New discovery is likely to be a rocky world in the ‘Goldilocks’ zone of its parent star where the temperature is just right for liquid water to flow

One of NASA's favorite planetary candidates for habitability is Kepler-438b. But even an "Earth-like" planet like Kepler-438b is still pretty alien.

Artistic representations of all known potentially habitable exoplanets (including newly-discovered Kepler-438b, Kepler-440b, Kepler-442b, and Kepler-443b), ranked from best to worst by the Earth Similarity Index - a measure of Earth-likeness based on stellar flux and planet size. Our planet, Mars, Jupiter, and Neptune are shown for scale. Image credit: PHL / UPR Arecibo.
