Goldilocks planets ‘with a tilt’ may develop more complex life

complex life on planets

Source: Eureka Alert Planets which are tilted on their axis, like Earth, are more capable of evolving complex life. This finding will help scientists refine the search for more advanced life on exoplanets. This NASA-funded research is presented at the Goldschmidt Geochemistry Conference. Since the first discovery of exoplanets (planets orbiting distant stars) in 1992, … Read more

Kepler Data Reveal Four Earth-Mass Free-Floating Exo-planets

complex life on planets

Using data from NASA’s Kepler/K2 mission, astronomers have detected four new microlensing events that are consistent with free-floating planets of similar masses to Earth. Source: Sci-News Gravitational microlensing is an observational effect that was predicted in 1936 by Albert Einstein using his general theory of relativity. When one star in the sky appears to pass nearly … Read more

Astronomers Detect a Cosmic Cloud, Bigger Than The Entire Milky Way

Astronomy News

Source : Science Alert In the yawning vacuum of intergalactic space, something large is lurking. Not a galaxy, although it’s of a comparable size: A vast cloud of hot, faintly glowing gas, bigger than the Milky Way, in the space between galaxies congregating in a huge cluster. Scientists believe this cloud may have been unceremoniously … Read more
