Today Kepler announced the discovery of the smallest exoplanets in a stars habitable zone. Two of the five planets discovered around Kepler 62 are within the habitable zone of the host star.

We discuss this discovery and much more: the TESS mission, factors that make a planet habitable, how many exoplanets there are and are likely to be.

Here are some links we discussed:
