Scientists have discovered the most earth-like exoplanet

The CARMENES Surveying Team, a huge group of international astronomers, is looking for exoplanets near the habitable zones of distant stars. You may have just discovered the most earthly planet out there. Exoplanet discoveries are occurring all the time – there are an estimated hundreds of billions of planets throughout the universe. However, this particular planet has caught the attention …

Two Earth-like worlds orbiting a red dwarf at only 12.5 light years away

In recent decades, the number of planets discovered outside our solar system has exploded. With over 4,000 confirmed exoplanets so far, the process has gradually shifted from discovery to characterization. This is to use sophisticated techniques to determine how likely it is that a planet is habitable. At the same time, astronomers continue to make regular discoveries, some of which …

We have just found 2 of the most earth-like exoplanets, only 12.5 light-years away

Astronomers are convinced that they have found two new Earth-like planets in our galaxy, and both resemble our planet so much that they are now among the 19 best-known exoplanets with potentially habitable environments. One of these two planets orbits a neighboring star in the constellation Aries, which is only 12.5 light-years away, and possibly has the closest resemblance to …

NASA scientists find earth-like water in the passing comet

Comet 46P / Wirtanen may have revealed how the early Earth was populated with water. Gianluca Masi / Virtual Telescope Project Our search for E.T. In the vast, dark forest of the universe, we search for signs of water. We know how important the stuff is for life to thrive. But closer to home there is a more pressing question: …

Scientists have just revealed that they have found hundreds of stars that could orbit Earth-like planets

Before 1995, the year when the first exoplanet was discovered, we only knew that there were planets in our solar system. Nearly two decades later, 4,000 exoplanets were discovered. There are nearly 3,000 more potential candidates. NASA estimates since the first discovery of the exoplanet, the number of known exoplanets has since doubled every 27 months. As the number of …

NASA's Curiosity rover spots a bed of Earth-like pebbles – BGR

NASA's trusty rovers and you'll see some pretty stunning stuff, you can almost always tell me when you see them see one. The sky is almost always a hazy orange, and the wind looks and devoid of recognizable features. One of the latest images sent back by the Curiosity rover does away with that "NASA's Mars rover Curiosity has acquired …

"Just another pale blue dot?" – Earth-like worlds may not be unusual

Posted on August 16, 2018 "Most of the building blocks we've looked at in other planetary systems have a similar composition to Earth," Dr. Siyi Xu of the Gemini Observatory in Hawaii, who presented the research at the Goldschmidt conference in Boston Earth's building blocks seem to consist of "fairly normal" components, according to researchers working with the world's most …
