Kepler-186f ~ The first known Earth-size planet to lie within the habitable zone of a star beyond the Sun. Discovered using data from the prolific planet-hunting Kepler spacecraft, the distant world orbits its parent star, a cool, dim, M dwarf star about half the size and mass of the Sun, some 500 light-years away from us, in the constellation Cygnus. While the size and orbit of Kepler-186f are known, its mass and composition are not, and can't be determined by Kepler's transit technique…
