Water-Rich Moons Could Form in 'Goldilocks Zone'
Moffett Field CA (SPX) Jul 01, 2015
Exomoons are the wildcard in the ongoing chase for habitable worlds. Astronomers have discovered more than 1,900 exoplanets, a few of which might be friendly to life, but no moons circling these alien bodies have turned up as of yet. Astronomers do not know how frequent exomoons might be or, for that matter, what they might be like. A new study fills in an important gap in the developing theoretical framework regarding exomoons. The paper looks at a special set of exomoons located in the habitable ... read more
