How many Earth twins are out there? Hundreds possibly

NASA’s recent discovery of Kepler-186f, the first habitable Earth-sized planet is big news in humankind’s long search for extraterrestrial life.

A universe full of exoplanets: Thanks to the Kepler Space Telescope, which was launched in 2009 to hunt planets across the universe, we’ve managed to find around 1800 exoplanets so far, many of which have been discovered in just the last year or so.

This Is Big: Scientists Just Found Earth’s First-Cousin

Right now, 500 light years away from Earth, there’s a planet that looks a lot like our own. It is bathed in dim orangeish light, which at high noon is only as bright as the golden hour before sunset back home. 
NASA scientists are calling the planet Kepler-186f, and it’s unlike anything they’ve found. The big news: Kepler-186f is the closest relative to the Earth that researchers have discovered. 
It’s the first Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of another star—the sweet spot between too-hot Mercury-like planets and too-cold Neptunes— and it is likely to give scientists their first real opportunity to seek life elsewhere in the universe. “It’s no longer in the realm of science fiction,” said Elisa Quintana, a researcher at the SETI Institute. 
But if there is indeed life on Kepler-186f, it may not look like what we have here. Given the redder wavelengths of light on the planet, vegetation there would sprout in hues of yellow and orange instead of green.

The Smallest English Dictionary in the World has been discovered by West Country book shop owner Graham York. Although only 1x3/4inch the tiny book’s 384 pages contain thousands of words, and even comes with a lens in its case for surreptitious study when challenged by a lack of diction. 
Printed by David Bryce & Sons in Glasgow in 1890 it’s thought only a handful of the mini books were made to show the printer’s skills. Graham said, ‘it would have been the perfect tool for a Victorian quiz or Scrabble night, just like a smart phone is today. Although you would have to be blessed with 20/20 vision to use it.’ Graham is now taking his miniature discovery to the Chelsea Book Fair in November where the tiny book is expected to generate huge interest.
