Earth's cousin

Of all planets discovered so far, Kepler 452-b has been found to be the most suitable for sustaining life, even being called ''Earth 2.0''. There are obviously some problems that we will have to find a way to solve, but hopefully with our technology and the advances we continue to make, not only will we have the means and the ability to reach Kepler 452-b, but if need be, we will be able to sustain life on Kepler 452-b for ourselves and the generations after us.
