Astronomers have, for the first time, the water(vapor) is found in the atmosphere of a planet within a “viability zone” around its star, which is a new phase in the sun, in the search for life outside our solar system. In the body, a superaarde”, which, as yet, little is known, rises to the rank of “the best candidate” for the search for signs of extra-terrestrial life.
“By the observations made by the Hubble space Telescope, we have a planet with an atmosphere which contains water vapour is: two times the good news for those of you who are looking for a viable candidate,” said Giovanna Tinetti, and co-author of a study Wednesday published in the journal Nature, Astronomy’.
It’s going to be exo, K2-18b, which, in 2015, the Us space telescope Kepler has been found, and which is in the constellation of Leo, around the red dwarf, K2-18 is running. The exoplanet, which is located on approximately 110 light-years away from our solar system has eight times the mass of Earth and twice the size.
On the basis of the data of the Hubble telescope in 2016 and 2017 and unpaid, could the scientists determine that the planet’s atmosphere waterdampmoleculen that it contains. “You can’t show that there is liquid water on the surface of the exoplanet. However, I do think, however, that this is very possible,” said Tinetti.
in Addition to the planet in the “habitable” zone around its star. Please read: do not go too near, or too far away from its heat, but where there is life, as we know it to develop. “With a temperature similar to that of the Earth.”
