The chances of finding alien organisms have been boosted by the discovery of hundreds of “water worlds” capable of supporting life.
New analysis by Harvard University estimates that one in three “exoplanets” outside our solar system that are larger than Earth are likely to contain an abundance of water.
The scientists say the planets that are two to four times bigger than Earth that have the best chance of supporting life.
Not that this changes the basic problem with alien – or indeed time travelling – life. If such exists, then where in buggery are they?
