Exomoons Could Be As Likely To Host Life As Exoplanets, Claims Scientists

May 21, 2015 |

When we imagine a habitable planet beyond our solar system we tend to think of a “second Earth”, a twin of our planet which is lies at an ideal distance from its host star — a range of distance from a star where liquid water could exists on the planet’s surface — perhaps a little too hot (desert climate) or too cold (eternal winter). What is often forgotten is that there may exists environmental conditions conducive to life different from what we see on Earth. Read More

Forty light years away in the Cancer constellation is a yellow star much like our sun. However, it is not alone, it has a smaller companion, a red dwarf star which is separated by over one thousand times the distance from the Earth to the Sun. 55 Cancri is the name of this binary star system. It also has a special feature: the yellow dwarf (55 Cancri A) have five exoplanets and may possibly host other worlds that we could not detect yet. Read More
