    Scientists reveal discovery of exoplanet with Earth-like temperatures and water

    Eight times the mass of Earth, twice as big, K2-18b orbits in its star's “habitable zone” at a distance, neither too far or too close, where water can exist in liquid form

    Water has been discovered for the first time in the atmosphere of an exoplanet with Earth-like temperatures that could support life as we know it, scientists revealed on Wednesday. Eight times the mass of Earth and twice as big, K2-18b orbits in its star's “habitable zone” at a distance - neither too far nor too close - where water can exist in liquid form, they reported in the journal Nature Astronomy.
