SPACE.com — Major Discovery: New Planet Could Harbor Water and Life

25 Apr

How exciting is this news. Scientist’s have found a planet that could have liquid water.  I’m not sure what kind of affect being the planet of a red dwarf would have on the biology that would take place, but hopefully some space based telescopes will have a high enough resolution to directly observe the planet soon.

If we can get a clear night this weekend I will try to view Gliese 581 and post the picture.  It won’t be too amazing, but the idea that it may have life is.
