Habitable zone planets. Computer illustration showing the relative sizes of habitable zone planets detected by NASA's Kepler space telescope, compared to Earth (far left). From left to right: Earth, Kepler-62f, Kepler-62e, Kepler-69c, Kepler-22b. The habitable zone is the region around a star where liquid water, an essential ingredient for life as we know it, could potentially be present.
