So this could be a first — and it’s a large deal. ⁠

A bunch of researchers from the Institute for Evaluation on Exoplanets on the Université de Montréal have detected water vapor — and maybe even rain — throughout the surroundings of an exoplanet that’s located in its star’s habitable zone. ⁠

Detecting liquid water on exoplanets signifies that they could harbor life — and the additional water worlds we spot, the nearer we get to confirming that we’re not alone throughout the universe.⁠

The planet, named K2-18b and located by NASA’s Kepler’s space telescope in 2015, is as distant from its star as Earth is from the Photo voltaic — which suggests it receives the same amount of vitality. Scientists don’t know if life could be succesful to outlive on K2-18b, nevertheless they’re hailing the invention as a breakthrough. Faucet the hyperlink in our bio to study this and further on The Byte.⁠

  • Yeah it’s a great discovery. Would have been luckier for us had it not been orbiting around a red dwarf star. The radiations now pose threat to life possibilities on this planet.

  • But just wondering why do we humans assume that “other life in universe” needs to water to exist? What if there is an alien life form that actually exist because of gas, or some toxin that is far different than how life exist on earth? The idea that life can only exist with water is well, a bit naive… we humans were so sure that no life can exist at the bottom of the ocean, yet it does and its creepy and far different from life that exist on ocean surface. To think that out in space, on another planet life would only be able to exist if there is water well… we still have to learn so much.

  • But who says other life needs water to live. That’s so ignorant to say in the first place.
