Two suns could up chances of habitable `Exomoons`
Zee Media Bureau
Washington: Moons in close binary solar systems have a better chance of hosting life than those in single-star systems according to a new research.
Binary stars dampen each other`s solar radiation and stellar winds, thereby creating a more hospitable environment for life and increasing the habitable zone around such solar systems.
An astrophysicist at the University of Texas at El Paso, Paul Mason said that binary system of stars works better than our own solar-type star without a companion and there is a plenty of room for several habitable planets and these may be places where many worlds in system could be habitable.
Mason added that exomoons in binary systems may be more habitable than around single stars and maybe less common, but potentially more habitable.
