Say hello to Earth’s bigger, older and long lost cousin Kepler 452b
It’s 60% bigger than the planet Earth. It’s five times more massive so you would feel a lot heavier there. For plants the sunshine from it star or sun is very similar to the sunshine from our star, so the plants would photosynthesize just like on Earth.
Earth 2.0 is 6 billion years old, Earth is 4.5 billion so hopefully our possible far away neighbors have Technology to have seen us. It is more than 1,400 light years away so we have to wait for James Webb space telescope to get more details around 2018.
