LANDSCAPES IN KEPLER-452B

Since the artificial satellite “Kepler” was launched by NASA un 2009, its telescope has been able to discover a large quantity of “exoplanets” (planets outside of the Solar System).

In 2015 the telescope discovers the exoplanet that was named as “Kepler-452B”, which according to NASA is the star more similar to the Earth that has been known so far. Its size is only 60% larger than our world y it spends 385 days in turning around a star similar to our Sun.

Nonetheless, to consider traveling to this place is highly unlikely since it is 1400 light years away from the Earth,

But the most intriguing issue is the hypothesis that this place is agonizing: its sun is in the stage of death and therefore if there are lakes or oceans, they may be evaporating and this liquid disappearing forever.

It is for this that, according to this theory, what Kepler-452B is showing us is the future of our planet, which is accelerated for the wrong use of our natural resources and the unprecedented contamination.

This Project is a metaphoric view of a landscape hopeless as that exoplanet seems to be at present.
