NASA Discovers Water on K2-18b | Super Earth in Another Solar System

K2-18b is an exoplanet now being referred to as a super-Earth is about 111 light-years away.

In a first for space scientists studying worlds far beyond our solar system, data from the Hubble Space Telescope have lead to the interpretation that water vapor exists in the atmosphere of an Earth-size planet.

The discovery, announced in September 2019 in 2 independent studies, comes from years of analysing the exoplanet K2-18b, a super-Earth that s over a hundred light-years from our solar system.

K2-18b s orbit also gets it 7 times closer to its star in contrast to Earth’s distance form the sun.

The revelation that astronomers have detected water on this type of planet elevates the hope for finding many more such habitable worlds beyond our solar system.

The technology doesn’t exist on this day to travel the distance, so the thought of colonizing such planets is irrelevant.

However at the speed at which scientists are moving a quantum leap could be in the offing enabling man to travel faster than the speed of light.
