Today, the discussion has shifted to an evaluation of the nature and size of those reserves, where they existed, and what this implies for any effort to find life (or the remains of it) on the Red Planet. Scientists with the European Space Agency have released the results of Mars Express’ observation of some 24 deep, enclosed craters in the northern hemisphere of Mars…

At present, 3,917 planets have been confirmed in 2,918 star systems, while 3,368 await confirmation. Of these, about 50 orbit within their star’s circumstellar habitable zone (aka. “Goldilocks Zone”) , the distance at which liquid water can exist on a planets’ surface…
