According to studies, earth-like planets and ocean worlds could be common in our galaxy

New estimates and calculations indicate that there are more earth-like planets and ocean worlds in our galaxy than previously known. This emerges from new research released this week. So far, the Earth is unique in its ability to absorb life in the universe. However, future NASA missions were geared towards visiting ocean worlds like Jupiter’s moon Europe to see if …

Chance to find young Earth-like planets higher than previously thought

Credit: CC0 Public Domain Studies by the University of Sheffield have shown that the probability of finding Earth-like planets in their early stages of formation is much higher than previously thought. The team examined groups of young stars in the Milky Way to determine if these groups were typical compared to theories and previous observations in other star-forming regions in …

New spectrograph on the Subaru telescope shows “earth-like” TRAPPIST-1 planetary orbits that are not misaligned

Artist’s impression of the TRAPPIST-1 exoplanet system. Credit: NAOJ Astronomers using the Subaru telescope have found that the Earth-like planets of the TRAPPIST-1 system are not significantly misaligned with the rotation of the star. This is an important result for understanding the development of planetary systems around very low-mass stars in general, and in particular the history of the TRAPPIST-1 …

An incorrectly labeled space object turned out to be the most Earth-like exoplanet to date

An international team of scientists has discovered an exciting earth-sized exoplanet that can absorb liquid water. “This fascinating, distant world gives us even greater hope that a second earth lies between the stars and is waiting to be found,” said Thomas Zurbuchen, deputy administrator of NASA’s Washington Science Directorate, who was not part of the research , in a statement. …

NASA’s image shows an “earth-like” exoplanet that could support liquid water

A group of scientists used re-analyzed data from NASA’s Kepler space telescope to discover an Earth-sized exoplanet orbiting in the habitable zone of its star. For the purposes of the Space Agency, habitable zone means the area around a star in which a planet could support liquid water – and possibly other life forms. This artist’s illustration shows what Kepler-1649c …

According to studies, Earth-like exoplanets are common in the Universe

Earth-like exoplanets are fairly common, according to a new UCLA study. Scientists led by Alexandra Doyle, a graduate of the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) for Geochemistry and Astrochemistry, came up with the idea A new method for analyzing the geochemistry of planets outside our solar system for the study, this week published in the journal Science. "We …
