Big Question For 2012: Will We Find Earth 2.0?
Analysis by Ian O'Neill

On Tuesday, astronomers using NASA's Kepler space telescope
announced the discovery of two Earth-size worlds orbiting a star
1,000 light-years away.

Kepler has detected many more candidate worlds of this size, but
this was the first time confirmation of small rocky worlds with
terrestrial dimensions had been announced.

Does this mean Kepler's mission has been accomplished? Is this
proof that Earth 2.0 exists? It is after all Kepler's prime
objective to seek out Earth-like worlds -- or "Earth analogs."
Isn't this exoplanetary duo "Earth-like"?
