 Medium: Scientists first discovered water in the atmosphere of exoplanets


WATER has been discovered for the first time in the atmosphere of an exoplanet, according to a study published Wednesday in the Journal Nature Astronomy, Agence France-Presse reported Wednesday. The report says that the temperatures of the exoplanets are similar to those of the Earth, enough to sustain life.

The exoplanet, K2-18b, is eight times the mass and twice the size of Earth and is located in the habitable zone of its parent star. Scientists say water can exist in liquid form in this case.
