Earth-Like Planets Could Turn into “Snowballs”

A wrong tilt could freeze Earth-like worlds into “snowballs”. Thus, making their oceans freeze and surface life impossible. A team of researchers from the University of Washington conducted a new study. So, they found the axial tilt and orbital dynamics of planets in the habitable zone around stars like our own sun...

Twin Super-Earths Found Orbiting in the Habitable Zone

Firstly astronomers found an exoplanet with a potential to harbor life. Then, they found its neighbor. Both of them lying in the habitable zone. A team of researchers found a super-Earth planet called K2-18b using data collected by the European Southern Observatory (ESO). They say the new planet could be a scaled-up version...
