NASA has discovered an Earth-like planet that could be inhabited, but it's 40 light-years away

Planet similar to Earth, but located 40 light years away, NASA scientists have discovered. Exoplanet Gliese 12b could host human life in the future, while according to a Daily Mail report, it is slightly smaller than Earth and its estimated surface temperature is just over 40 degrees. Scientists now plan to analyze Gliese 12b to determine whether it has an Earth-like atmosphere, which would reveal whether the exoplanet has the ability to maintain the right temperature for water to form on its surface, a necessary condition to support life. . Gliese 12b is the “closest, most temperate Earth-sized world to date” and is a candidate for future exploration by the James Webb Space Telescope.
