Don’t sweat the apocalypse — there’s another planet out there just like ours! NASA scientists yesterday declared the discovery of a new world that’s remarkably similar to Earth. Meet Kepler-22b:

The planet has a surface which hovers around a balmy 72 degrees Fahrenheit and it rotates around a star similar to our sun, within what scientists call a “Goldilocks” or habitable zone. 
 That means the planet won’t be too hot or too cold — it’ll just stay at a moderate temperature, like that proverbial bowl of porridge.
 The downside: Kepler-22b is 600 light years — about 3.5 quadrillion miles — away and orbits every 290 days around a ball of gas slightly smaller and cooler than ours.
