What are some of the characteristics scientists are looking for when they search for other
Earth-like planets?
Scientists have embarked on a long journey of scientific research in search of the earth
like planets. They are looking for planets that can host life such as the earth which is beyond the
solar system. They are on the hunt for planets with earthlike characteristics. These characteristics
include the same size as the earth and strategic proximity of the orbit to its star to support liquid
water (Kepler & K2, 2013). These features produce a habitable zone that can possibly host life as
the earth. The proximity of the planet to its star allows for the moderation of temperature which
is ideal to hold liquid water.

What technology are scientists using to search for other planets? How are they using this
technology to identify other planets?

Science has attracted a lot of inventions and aggressiveness to kn...
