Two Nearby Planets Are Perfect To Check For Alien Life

Posted by in categories: alien life, physics

A pair of worlds that are just around the corner in cosmic terms look to be in the right spot to potentially host life as we know it.

A report in the February issue of the journal Astronomy and Astrophysics details the discovery of two exoplanets the orbit the red M-dwarf star GJ (or Gliese) 1002 in its habitable zone and are not far off from the mass of Earth.

These two characteristics top the list of things that make another planet worth getting excited about in terms of the odds it might have some sort of critters or even just primitive microorganisms hanging out.
