Quotes

...David Charbonneau, with the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, wrote in an email to Discovery News: "Previously, the exoplanet most like Earth was Kepler-62f, but Kepler-186f is significantly smaller. Now we can point to a star and say, ' There lies an Earth-like planet '."
"This planet is in the habitable zone, but that's doesn't mean it is habitable" Barclay said
...In a press release , Adams said, "One of the most interesting questions in science is whether life can arise on other planets or, alternatively, if life on this planet is unique. The discovery of planets with Earth-like properties is one important link in the chain required to answer this question. And the discovery of the planet Kepler-186f is an important step toward finding a planet that is like our Earth."
