Exoplanet K2–18b Could Have the Right Conditions for Life
Just over 120 light years from Earth, exoplanet K2–18b could have conditions favorable to the development of life, a new study reveals. It all comes down to the science.
The exoplanet K2–18b, sitting 124 light years from Earth, may have conditions favorable to the development of life, a new study suggests. The world is larger than the Earth, is known to have a substantial atmosphere, and new research suggests that conditions on this world may also be favorable to producing large pools of liquid water.
