In today’s paper, we will see how Kepler-like large scale surveys on planet habitability is the smartest way to answer The Big Question.
In today’s bite, we push Bayes’ theorem to the limits, in an attempt to make predictions about the prevalence of habitable planets covered in ocean.
Strong evidence of cryovolcanism on Jupiter’s Moon Europa spells good news for its habitability.
Some planets have atmospheres, and some don’t. What gives?
Astronomers have found hydrogen contamination in the atmospheres of helium white dwarfs – but where in the world/universe is it coming from?! The authors of today’s astrobite perform statistical tests to see if the source of this pesky hydrogen could be water-bearing rocky bodies out in space.
In this bite we dig into the details of the recent discovery of 7 habitable zone planets orbiting TRAPPIST-1.
