Water found on exoplanet in habitable zoneat 110 lights years out. Bob Zimmerman, BehindtheBlack.com
. . . This exoplanet is about nine times more massive than our Earth and is found in the habitable zone of the star it orbits. This M-type star is smaller and cooler than our Sun, but due to K2-18b’s close proximity to its star, the planet receives almost the same total amount of energy from its star as our Earth receives from the Sun.
