This artist's concept shows two super-Earth exoplanets, K2-18b and c, orbiting the red dwarf star K2-18. However, K2-18c doesn't really have a favourable atmosphere for life to thrive in it, as it's much closer to its star, being too hot to be habitable. When we finally decide to make the move, a planet called K2-18b might be our destination. Located in the Leo constellation, about 111 lightyears away from Earth, the Super-Earth planet was first discovered in 2015. K2-18b, scientists say, could be in an excellent location for alien life to emerge-having ideal conditions for surface water, a fundamental ingredient for life, to exist.
But scientists weren't sure if the planet was a scaled-up version of Earth (a rocky or terrestrial planet) or a scaled-down version of Neptune (a gas and ice planet).
"If you can get the mass and radius, you can measure the bulk density of the planet and that can tell you what the bulk of the planet is made of", Cloutier said.
"Being able to measure the mass and density of K2-18b was tremendous, but to discover a new exoplanet was lucky and equally exciting", said Ryan Cloutier, a PhD student at the University of Toronto.
'Winner' Fabregas changed my mind, says Conte
I really mean it. "Especially how I play, the position, you can go for many more years, I can tell you many cases", Fabregas said. I was frustrated because of this situation and tried to say again.
Researchers believe K2-18b is either mostly rock with a slight gaseous atmosphere or mostly water surrounded by a thick, icy shell.
Current technology prevents us from being able to definitively say which one it is but the fact that it could be either is a huge leap forward in our understanding of this distant solar system.
By collecting so-called "radial velocity" data on K2-18, the scientists were able to estimate the size of K2-18b.
