worldleaks  5 planets

Two recent studies by NASA with the help of Hubble Space Telescope has found the presence of water in the atmospheres of five planets beyond our  solar system.

The two research teams used Hubble’s Wide Field Camera 3 to analyze starlight passing through the atmospheres of the five “hot Jupiter” planets, which are known as WASP-17b, HD209458b, WASP-12b, WASP-19b and XO-1b.

The atmospheres of all five planets pointed signs of water, with the strongest signatures found in the air of WASP-17b and HD209458b.

According to reports the five exoplanets with hints of water are all scorching-hot and are unlikely to host life.

This is the first time scientists have measured and equated profiles of the substance in detail across multiple alien worlds.

According to researchers, finding of water in the atmospheres of these planets marks a step forward in the search for distant planets that may be capable of supporting alien life.
