Scientists have discovered habitable exoplanets

The two planets GJ 1002b and GJ 1002c orbit the red dwarf and have a mass similar to that of Earth.

Astronomers have discovered two potentially habitable exoplanets 16 light-years away. Space reported it.

It is mentioned that they can be water and different life forms, because this zone is neither too hot nor too cold. However, this does not guarantee that these exoplanets are now habitable.

For example, in the solar system, both Venus and Mars are in the habitable zone of the Sun, but currently there is no life in them, because there is almost no oxygen on Mars, and the temperature on the surface of Venus reaches 470 ° C.

It is noteworthy that the exoplanets were discovered as a result of the collaboration between the instrument of the European Southern Observatory (ESO) and the CARMENES telescope.

Both instruments observed the planets in two different periods: CARMENES studied GJ 1002 from 2017 to 2019, and ESPRESSO collected data on the red dwarf from 2019 to 2021.

It was previously reported that the NASA InSight spacecraft recorded the strongest and longest earthquake on Mars.
