A pair of physicists demonstrate in a paper that this would give us enough light to see a clear view of exoplanets orbiting the nearby star Proxima Centauri
The European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope finds two giant planets orbiting a distant star that's just like our sun
Previous machine learning tools have ranked planets’ likelihood of being planets but were unable to determine if they are exoplanets
“This study assesses the impact that ocean circulation has on nutrient cycling, biological productivity & the detectability of life on exoplanets”
A rather crowded neighborhood...
The study suggests that we should start investigating worlds larger than the Earth whose atmospheres are dominated by hydrogen
This ferocious heat vaporizes metals present in the planet
"These technologies are very important, especially for big data sets and especially in the exoplanet field"
They orbit a star just 73 light-years away
This is the largest set of discoveries ever made, increasing the number of distant objects with well-known paths around the sun by 50%
