Further Away Planets 'Can Support Life" Say Researchers
"The University of Aberdeen team, which included academics from the University of St. Andrews, said cold rocky planets thought uninhabitable might be able to support life beneath the surface."
Life on Other Planets Could Be Far More Widespread, Study Finds
"Earth-sized planets can support life at least ten times further away from stars than previously thought, according to academics at the University of Aberdeen."
Increased insolation threshold for runaway greenhouse processes on Earth-like planets
"The increase in solar luminosity over geological timescales should warm the Earth's climate, increasing water evaporation, which will in turn enhance the atmospheric greenhouse effect."
Cloud modeling expands estimate of life-supporting planets
"A new study that calculates the influence of cloud behavior on climate doubles the number of potentially habitable planets orbiting red dwarfs, the most common type of star in the universe."
