Earth-like Planet just 39 light years away with a thick atmosphere, It could mean there’s Water
A rocky, oven-hot Earth-sized spotted orbiting a small nearby star just over a year ago is one of the best chances we have of finding alien life outside our solar system.
The planet, named GJ1132b, is around 1.2 times the size of Earth and appears to be predominantly composed of rock and iron.
Now scientists have taken the closest look yet at GJ1132b, confirming the presence of its thick atmosphere and finding hints the planet could be rich in water.
