NASA: At least 300 million exoplanets in the Milky Way may be habitable


Looking for habitable exoplanets in the Milky Way The study’s findings were based on data gathered by the Kepler space telescope. ... At least four of these exoplanets may be within 30 light-years of the sun, with the closest one located no more than 20 light-years away. "...

Scientists identify 24 exoplanets that may be more habitable than Earth


Exoplanets, celestial bodies that orbit a star other than the sun, are found everywhere in the cosmos. ... These exoplanets should orbit a K-dwarf star, which is cooler, less massive and less luminous than the sun and other G-type stars. "...

New computer models suggest life on the nearest exoplanets may already be thriving

Do the rules of environmental protection extend to exoplanets beyond our solar system?


Goethe University researcher Claudius Gros analyzed the issue of environmental protection for exoplanets . ... By the time humans reached oxygen-rich exoplanets, the worlds might still be devoid of life. "...

Space-time ripples could help scientists uncover exoplanets from other galaxies


In turn, these technologies have the potential to spot pairs of white dwarfs and the exoplanets orbiting them. ... Future research could look into the exoplanets that formed before and after the stars became white dwarfs. "...

Experts: More than 100 giant exoplanets may have potentially life-hosting moons


During its nine years of operation, Kepler found seven out of every 10 known exoplanets. ... None of these exoplanets have been proven to have a retinue of natural satellites. "...

Cradles of life? New research says oceans on exoplanets may harbor more life than Earth


Olson added that scientists searching for life could prioritize exoplanets that harbor these differences. Experts typically favor studying exoplanets with as many Earth-like features as possible. "...

New model suggests several planets in the universe might have water-rich atmospheres


Exoplanets are planets outside of the Solar System. They usually orbit stars other than the Sun. ... The explosions blow away the hydrogen, turning the sub-Neptunes into hot, rocky exoplanets. "...

Currently on its ninth year of operation, Kepler has identified thousands of potential exoplanets. ... Perhaps one of the new exoplanets will fulfill the dream of astronomers. Google AI helps find planets Kepler’s hunt for exoplanets is aided by Google’s artificial intelligence (AI) system. "...

Other planets may be home to more diverse life forms than Earth, suggest scientists


Put simply, life on Earth’s oceans and possibly on oceans in other exoplanets depend on this phenomenon to sustain biodiversity. ... Furthermore, as their models suggest, oceans in other exoplanets could be more abundant in biological activities than those on Earth. "...

Scientists discover over 1,000 stars where E.T. can observe Earth


Five percent of the stars are likely too young for intelligent life to have evolved in any exoplanets that orbit them. ... According to co-author Joshua Pepper of Lehigh’s Physics Department, it’s rare for exoplanets to be in a direct line of sight to Earth. "...

Earth-like planets not as rare as once thought: Astronomers estimate there are 2,000 nearby stars that house them


Stassun said that it may only take a few years before they eventually come across signs of Earth-like exoplanets in other star systems. ... Those orbital periods place the exoplanets within the habitable zone of the star . "...

Breakthrough Listen Project and NASA collaborate on the search for advanced alien civilizations


The collaboration will expand the Breakthrough Listen’s target list, adding over 1,000 exoplanets detected via TESS in the last two years . ... NASA funds SETI study In June 2020, NASA awarded a grant to a SETI study that will scan exoplanets for technosignatures. "...
