According to the latest discovery by scientists, exoplanets in our universe may be home to a life that has much better conditions than those on our planet.
The abundance of the living world, far more than the land that enjoys conditions far better than those offered by our planet. Scientists believe such planets exist.
The research team of geophysicist Stephanie Olson of the University of Chicago used special software from NASA that made a model of what living conditions might offer for more discovered exoplanets. The results were surprising.
"The conditions of some exoplanets that have favorable ocean currents could support life forms far more numerous and active than on Earth," says Olson.
These oceans are similar to those on Earth. Because of the upward flow of nutrients from the depths of the oceans to sunny parts where there are conditions for photosynthetic life, it means that there are nutrients that can be recovered, which means biological activity.
Researchers have found that the combination of a thinner atmosphere, slower rotation, and the presence of continents together contributes to greater propulsion.
This research will help expand the parameters used today in the search for life-supporting planets. Currently, the main parameters focus on the temperature and presence of liquid oceans. “Not all the oceans are equally hospitable. Some oceans are better places to live thanks to the currents, "explains Olson.
Scientists estimate that nearly 35 percent of the discovered exoplanets larger than the Earth should be rich in water, meaning there is plenty of potential for life.
