Alien Life Might Need a Stable Home

Looking at how the axis of planets affect their climate could help us better understand which exoplanets may be inhabited by alien life.

Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology recently developed computer models simulating how the climate of Earth might behave if our planet were placed in an alien solar system containing a pair of stars. By carrying out this study, researchers hope to learn more about which planets around other stars (exoplanets) are most likely to develop, and sustain, life.
