First Earth-like planet spotted outside solar system likely a volcanic wasteland

(Space Fellowship) – When scientists confirmed in October that they had detected the first rocky planet outside our solar system, it advanced the longtime quest to find an Earth-like planet hospitable to life.

Rocky planets — Earth, Mercury, Venus and Mars — make up half the planets in our solar system. Rocky planets are considered better environments to support life than planets that are mainly gaseous, like the other half of the planets in our system: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.

    We absolutely love your blog and find most of your post’s to
    be exactly what I’m looking for. Would you offer guest writers to write
    content available for you? I wouldn’t mind creating
    a post or elaborating on some of the subjects you write related to here.

    Again, awesome web site!
