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 …

The bizarre exoplanet could be a gas giant that has lost its gas

Gaseous core By studying a giant, distant exoplanet, astronomers have a rare opportunity to better understand the gas giants of our solar system, such as Jupiter and Saturn. This is because the Exoplanet TOI-849b appears to be the exposed core of a similar gas giant. Space.com Reports. An international team of astronomers suspect that either the exoplanet’s gaseous outer layers …

NASA wants to photograph the surface of an exoplanet

There is a lot to be asked of a mission, but Turyshev believes the technology needed is mature enough to make it possible. Reusable rockets have dramatically reduced the cost of access to space. Small satellites are used regularly for demanding space missions. The Voyager spaceships live and live in interstellar space. Awnings have unfolded on several missions. And we …

Asteroid impacts may be vital for exoplanet to support life, study says

Past asteroid impacts on a soil, but a new study suggests a 'Goldilocks' impact from a space could be an important ingredient in supporting life on other planets. The research, which The planet, two events happen: the material from the object is added to the exoplanet's mass and "Given sufficient bombardment, planets below the gap would be expected to loose …
