This planet is not represented in SE exoplanets catalog, because it is a new discovery. However, you can add it yourself.

It sound very interesting, I think there are 3 or so planets so far that "most likely" have liquid water (this one, gliese 581 planets, and another I forgot)

I can't wait for the JWST launch which as far as I know will be able to find out a lot more about these planets.

Looks like this is the real search for earth's twin cool . Better to keep our head low though as Dr Stephen Hawking had suggested once in the past - It's nice if we can find earth-like planets as long as we are not found by another more advanced civilization like the one in "Indipendence Day" or Cylons from "Battlestar Galactica" biggrin

Stephen Hawkings foolish and paranoid views on this matter do not exactly impress me..

The discovery is a very interresting developement though

What i've read and seen of Stephen Hawkings on this matter never seemed foolish or paranoid to me. Isn't his point only that when a more advanced civilization comes into contact with a lesser advanced one, it most likely leads to the destruction of the lesser advanced civilization. Like we see in our history and between species in nature.

Agreed, I really don't think a species capable of space travel would be simple enough to try and destroy other intelligence.

You can't compare people reaching america and destroying then natives to the intelligence required for interstellar travel.

My point exactly. It's an anthropocentric projection of our own conflicts on earth onto the presumed intelligence of an interstellar civilization. It's not just stupid, it's also dangerous fear mongering and needs to be avoided IMO.

Okay guys, can we keep the discussion focused on Kepler 22b, before this thread gets derailed. I suggest start another thread in off-topic about 'killer' aliens....

One thing that's funny and i cant understand is we have the most powerful eye in the sky orbiting and looking into deep space but then dont point the Hubble telescope at the new planets they discover.. I mean is money the problem? The say "We havent determined the composition of the planet" and what not... Well if Hubble can look so far into deep space point it at Kepler-22b and it will show you the "people" there waving back at us.. i dont see what the problem is. And if not Hubble why not build another powerful telescope that can give us a close up at objects like that. Thats what i think.

lexrazor, Hubble cannot see Kepler-22b and any other discovered exoplanet. They are too close to their suns. There are less than 10 planets discovered ин direct photographing of them, for example Fomalhaut b.

And this is a question of money smile
