@reece We have only found one planet with similar size to Earth within the habitable zone of its system and star. However, scientists estimate there are at least 40 Billion Earth sized planets orbiting in the Milky Way Galaxy alone. See my link provided in vote above for this article.

@MakeSensePeopleDont Kepler-186f was just the first one. Your knowledge is outdated.

@reece Hey thanks for the info, however, these are not Earth-like planets. In the NatGeo you site, they actual note that those 8 planets are "less than 2.7 times the size of Earth". They then go on to discuss a bunch of new possibilities they may have found, etc. etc. etc. Currently, the only Earth-like planet, meeting requirements outlined, that is being deemed Earth-like, inhabitable, and realistic, is the one mentioned previously. However, keep your eyes peeled, they update that info every day so you may find something new :)

Earthlike planets don't require to be the same size. It's like saying a child isn't a human when compared to an adult or vise versa. You could even mix it up with nationality.

@MakeSensePeopleDont By the way you were really outdated. This is old news.

@reece Outdated? What is outdated about my data?

@MakeSensePeopleDont I just shortened the sentence to keep things simple for you, but i guess it didn't work.

@reece I have no idea what you are talking about still. I just re-read the convo 3 times and still don't understand.

@MakeSensePeopleDont It's okay.
