Eight more exoplanets (planets outside of our solar system) that might sustain life have been discovered from Kepler telescope data. That is, the probability is high that liquid water would be accommodated on their surfaces. Per the article:

 

Astronomers announced today that they have found eight new planets in the 'Goldilocks' zone of their stars, orbiting at a distance where liquid water can exist on the planet's surface. This doubles the number of small planets (less than twice the diameter of Earth) believed to be in the habitable zone of their parent stars. Among these eight, the team identified two that are the most similar to Earth of any known exoplanets to date....With a diameter just 12 percent bigger than Earth, Kepler-438b has a 70-percent chance of being rocky, according to the team's calculations. Kepler-442b is about one-third larger than Earth, but still has a 60-percent chance of being rocky.... Kepler-438b is located 470 light-years from Earth while the more distant Kepler-442b is 1,100 light-years away.

Il semble plus probable que possible que la vie se est développée ailleurs, comme il a ici. Je suppose que la vie organique existe ailleurs. Nous avons la prevue
