Large data for potential Planet B: Astronomers found a big exoplanet in a position to holding liquid water in livable circumstances.🚰⁠

I do know a great deal of you might say, “Why are we trying to find Planet B after we should be caring for Planet A, our very private Earth?” And you aren’t mistaken! Nonetheless this generally is a pretty distinctive uncover by NASA — and it’s correct in our cosmic once more yard, solely 124 light-years away. So, let’s take a greater take a look at its potential.⁠

Known as “K2-18b,” the exoplanet is 2.6 events the radius of Earth and orbits its star contained in the “habitable zone” — the world in a star system the place liquid water can exist — as determined by a superb crew of astronomers from the School of Cambridge. Faucet the hyperlink in our bio to study additional about their findings.⁠

  • Please, Planet B is for the planet we are trying to find since Planet A is losing is resources too vast for it to provide for what humanity wants. Once this planet is no longer able we must look at a new home.

  • Why would you tell us if we won’t be able to ever get there. Just clean up this planet and we won’t need a planet B😒

  • why are you still getting so excited by these news? they discover new potentially habitable exoplanets all the time, so it’s not that special, plus it’s not like we can hop on an FTL ship and go there.. 🤷

  • “Cosmic backyard” is still unattainable for human bodies…we still don’t know what the cosmic bow shock and radiation will do to human bodies or even starships for that matter
