Earth’s fiery twin discovered.
NASA have announced the discovery of Kepler-78b - a planet 1.2 times the size of Earth and 1.7 times more massive, resulting in a density that is the same as Earth’s.  It also orbits around a star slightly smaller than our Sun.
While the planet has a similar composition to Earth’s, it’s unsuitable for life as we know it - Kepler-78b whizzes around its host star every 8.5 hours, making it into a blazing inferno.
