Alien Planet Appears To Have Earth-like Mass

Scientists have discovered an alien planet approximately 13,000 light-years away called OGLE-2016-BLG-1195Lb. The world appears to be about the same mass as Earth and orbits a central star. OGLE-2016-BLG-1195Lb is approximately the same distance from it’s “sun” as Earth is from the Sun in our solar system. However, OGLE-2016-BLG-1195Lb’s central star is a significantly cooler than our Sun so they believe the planet may be completely frozen and void of life.
