Water Found on Extrasolar Planet

Posted on Posted in general, space (not spatial)

For the first time, scientists have found solid evidence of water on a planet outside our solar system. The planet in question is relatively close to Earth and clearly has water in its atmosphere. While the temperatures on the planet are way hotter than anywhere on Earth, they say water can survive in an amazing range of temperatures. We know water is mandatory for all we know about life, so that’s one criteria down!
