US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — The JWST heavy-duty telescope allowed scientists to discover a series of planets orbiting a white dwarf. According to experts, there may be life on some bodies.
The telescope was designed to search for biosignatures in the atmospheres of exoplanets, which are located far beyond the solar system. The white dwarfs around which the exoplanets revolve are in fact dead stars, but they are still able to radiate heat. In this state, stars can last billions of years.
The first analyzes showed that, if there is life on the planets, it does not face the destructive influence of climate and other factors. Heat exoplanets arrive stably and in sufficient quantities.
Studying a group of planets is a simple task due to the fact that their star does not emit a strong glow, which prevents observation. Very soon it will become known whether it is really possible to hope for the presence of living beings on the discovered bodies.
