NASA can’t keep it secret if it shows up on Google! – Scientists are expanding the search for extraterrestrial life?and they’ve set their sights on some very unearthly planets?and it turns out there are LOTS of them! But if we DO find life on other planets, there’s a strong chance the general public will never hear about it.
NASA scientists are looking for cold “Super-Earths,” which are giant, “snowball” planets that astronomers have spied on the outskirts of faraway solar systems and which could potentially support some kind of life. Such planets are plentiful; experts estimate that one-third of all solar systems contain super-Earths.
