THIS year’s Nobel Prize for Physics honoured Michel Mayor and Didier Queloz, Swiss astronomers who proved the existence of a planet orbiting a star far beyond the Earth’s solar system.Their find set off a series of so-called exoplanet discoveries, often with features that are nothing like the nine planets circling our sun.Here is a backgrounder on the search for far-away planets that could support some form of life — though not necessarily as we now understand it.Although their existence had long been theorised in both research labs and in popular culture, until 1995 no one had been able to prove one existed<br> by MARLOWE HOOD & JOSEPH SCHMID/ pic by AFP THIS year’s Nobel Prize for Physics honoured Michel Mayor and Didier Queloz, Swiss astronomers who proved the existence of a […]

Exoplanets — tantalising search for life beyond the solar system

A hot, molten Earth would be around 5% larger than its solid counterpart. This is the result of a study led by researchers at the University of Bern. The difference between molten and solid rocky planets is important for the search of Earth-like worlds beyond our Solar System and the understanding o

Liquifying a Rocky Exoplanet to Aid in the Search for Earth-Like Worlds Beyond Our Solar System

Bern, Switzerland (SPX) Oct 10, 2019 - Rocky exoplanets that are around Earth-size are comparatively small, which makes them incredibly difficult to detect and characterise using telescopes. What are the optimal conditions to find such s
