ESO said there's a newly discovered exoplanet in a habitable zone considered to be the best candidate in the search for life. Scientists believe that it is even more promising compared to TRAPPIST-1.
NASA released the uncalibrated raw data from its observation of the newly identified star system, Trappist-1. Users will have to do some reformatting to interpret the data.
A team of astronomers has recently discovered three habitable alien planets that have Earth-like qualities. Interestingly, these newly discovered exoplanets are orbiting a nearby "ultracool dwarf star" called TRAPPIST-1, shedding more hints that life outside the solar system could be possible.
Alerted by the eccentric orbit of a planet with a mass eight times the size of Jupiter's, astronomers recently concluded that the planet has a unique, "dancing" orbit involving the unusual components of itself and a Sun-like star as well as a dwarf star.
