Can life reach other areas than Earth? New studies show us there might be a way for specific exoplanets to provide a simple, yet, good condition for life to develop. More about these new ‘phenomena’ we are going to find out next. Scientists struggled too many years to reach for a possibility of life in outer space.
The reason why they insist so much with this is that they’ve always been so close, and yet, too far. Meaning that they succeeded in the past to find out some information, but it was never enough.
Nowadays, scientists believe in the power of computers, more than ever. According to a new study, developed by a strong team of scientists, they must rely on their supercomputers very much. They use supercomputers to simulate outer space conditions and to understand more why they missed in the past, some important things.
They could easily explore, as well, other conditions that could have a possibility of existing on various types of exoplanets, which means that there could be areas out there where life extraordinarily blooms, maybe even more than Earth. As they began, they focused very much on oceans.
Scientists believe that specific exoplanets could have better conditions for life than Earth
With her statement, Stephanie Olson, a geophysicist from the University of Chicago, proudly said that her team aimed at analyzing the specific exoplanets that have vast oceans, which possess the best volume to maintain a globally rich and dynamic alien life.
Also, conditions like massive biological activity could indicate a high chance for an exoplanet to sustain alien life. Olson and her team used an advanced software known as ROCKE-3D, created by the NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies.
The software is used to simulate a rocky exoplanet. They succeeded, however, to reproduce a variety of many exoplanets to identify and explore, exoplanets which could offer the most significant chance to develop life, based only on an ocean movement.
Moreover, the scientists stated that other factors they are considering are the ones which show the temperature variations because this could also indicate if an exoplanet is indeed a livable area.
