Water is also life … so naturally when the “good old” Hubble Space Telescope detects water in the atmosphere of exoplanets 5, everyone is racing a little faster! However, the imagination of some was quickly tempered by another information: these planets are not habitable and are downright inhospitable
a size equal to or greater than Jupiter exoplanets that have been named WASP-17b, HD209458b, WASP-12b, WASP-19b and XO-1b. Only downside, they all have extremely high temperatures as too close to their star. All forms of life are therefore seems impossible in the present state of our knowledge.
short, but you will most certainly included, are traces of water in gaseous form that detected.
This discovery is good news for scientists to better manage better identify water molecules including very remote distances.
To go further, especially additional details you should know that the full results of these observations have been published in the scientific journal “The Astrophysical Journal”.
