For the first time, scientists have found an Earth-sized world orbiting in a life-friendly zone around a distant star.  The discovery is the closest scientists have come so far to finding a true Earth twin. The star, known as Kepler-186f and located about 500 light years away in the constellation Cygnus, is smaller and redder than the sun. The star's outermost planet receives about one-third the radiation from its parent star as Earth gets from the sun, meaning that high noon on this world would be roughly akin to Earth an hour before sunset.
