Once you finally cross that threshold where exercise becomes a routine, there’s a big “what’s next?” question that pops into your brain. For many of us, simply doing the work just isn’t exciting enough. As a cyclist, I needed to push myself out of my comfort zone to keep things interesting.

A landmark discovery was announced by NASA this month: the possibility of a second Earth in Kepler-452b. Found by NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope, this planet orbits a star much like our Sun at a distance roughly similar to Earth. Could there be life on this "Earth 2.0" or even beyond?

This post originally appeared in Wired. The most sensitive work environments, like nuclear power plants, demand the strictest security. Usually this is achieved by air-gapping computers from the Internet and preventing workers from inserting USB sticks into computers.
