The Council of the European Southern Observatory, or ESO, has approved the construction in the Atacama desert of the world's most powerful telescope, capable of studying whether life exists in other galaxies.
A new study has revealed that the combination of earth-based science of sustainability and the space-oriented field of astrobiology can shed light on the future of technological civilization on Earth and is the planet first and only technologically-intensive culture in Universe.
Scientists have revealed that they are using the world`s first robotic laser adaptive optics system to explore thousands of exoplanet systems (planets around other stars) at resolutions approaching those of the Hubble Space Telescope.
Are astronomers being fooled by signs of life on exoplanets? This may well be the case if we believe a significant research, suggesting that the search for life on planets outside our solar system may be more difficult than previously thought.
