What is the possibility of finding an Earth-like planet?
Based on Kepler Data, There's a 95% Chance of an Earth-Like Planet Within 20 Light-Years. In the past few decades, the study of exoplanets has grown by leaps and bounds, with 4296 confirmed discoveries in 3,188 systems and an additional 5,634 candidates awaiting confirmation.
Kepler-22b has an estimated mass of 36 Earth masses and a radius of 2.38 Earth radii, making it a "super-Earth." It is an ocean planet instead of having a rocky, Earth-like composition.Jun 28, 2013
The Google Earth mobile app has been updated to show what Earth would look like from outer space. Unlike Google Maps, the default app for navigation, Google Earth provides a satellite view of the planet.
A Documentary about on how the true age of our Planet Earth originated and through computer graphics, what the Earth looked like during its lifetime, and through the information of expert geologists and astronomers.
An orbital view of the Pokémon world, as seen in the anime. Pokémon World is the name given to the Earth-like planet (possibly a parallel universe version of Earth) that the Pokémon franchise takes place on. Humans live on this planet alongside Pokémon as a human-animal-like relationship.
The Last Man on Earth chronicles the life and adventures of an average guy - and humanity's last hope - who discovers what life is like when no one is telling you what you can do and cannot do. The year is 2020, one year after a deadly virus has swept the planet, only one man is left on earth: Phil Miller (Will Forte).
Geologists study rocks because they contain clues about what the Earth was like in the past. We can assemble a historical record of a planet and trace events that occurred long before humans roamed our planet.

The Threat To Earth From Asteroids Comets
Most of the asteroids and comets in our solar system do not pose any danger to our planet. But, for every thousand or so of those objects there is one with an orbit crosses that of Earth, posing the possibility of a collision at some future time.
The terms "terrestrial planet" and "telluric planet" are derived from Latin words for Earth (Terra and Tellus), as these planets are, in terms of structure, Earth-like.
The aurora is visible from space At an orbit thousands of kilometres above Earth, the aurora looks like a flickering crown around the poles of our planet.
The first and major difference between the earth and the moon is that the earth is a planet and moon is a satellite (the earth goes around the sun and the moon goes around the earth which is a planet). The earth has only one satellite. Some planets like Saturn and Jupiter have many moons for them.
Asteroid Was On Track To Hit Earth. Then Something Changed
2021 QM1 was on its way towards Earth with a possibility of hitting the planet, as calculations revealed, in 2052. The object was on a path towards the Sun and was set to come dangerously close to the home planet. "We could see its future paths around the Sun, and in 2052 it could come dangerously close to Earth.
Earth is the only known planet of the solar system which supports life. Earth has oxygen, water and temperature. All these conditions which are supporting life, like presence of water and air in a good proportion, presence of life supporting gas and balanced temperature make earth a unique planet.
The search for an Earth-like planet has taken astronomers not just behind our solar system, but also behind the Milky Way Galaxy and a new planet has raised expectations. Astronomers have discovered a Super-Earth located in the habitable zone of its Red Dwarf star.
