Aliens may come invading the Earth or in peace, we never know. But the hint of potential danger has not stopped us from pointing our eyes and lenses at the vast expanse of space and wonder anyway. We scour the inky void for signs of life as well as for signs of planets that can potentially harbour life. Scientists have now found another almost Earth-like exoplanet that has the potential of harbouring life. Why? Because the planet lies in what is called 'habitable zone' around its star. In our Solar System, Earth lies perfectly in the habitable zone.
The raw ingredients for life.
