    Answer to the question of extraterrestrial life can be found in space dust

    (ORDO NEWS) — A Japanese scientist suggested trying to focus on studying cosmic dust to search for life beyond Earth. Professor Tomonori Totani, an astrobiologist at the University of Tokyo, writes that studying exoplanets that are millions of miles away from us is an extremely difficult task. In this regard, it is possible to change the object of study itself – to take cosmic dust that has already settled on…

    There may be extraterrestrial life in the “terminator zone”

    (ORDO NEWS) — The area between the night and day side of the planet is a logical place to look for life on other planets. This narrow area may actually be home to extraterrestrial life forms. There are millions of planets in which one part is constantly bathed in the light of a star, and the other is hidden in darkness. The area between these two sides is called the…

    Extraterrestrial life may be hiding in “terminator zones” on exoplanets, scientists have found

    (ORDO NEWS) — Astrophysicists set out to find out if exoplanets could support life. Astronomers have come to the conclusion that on the surface of some exoplanets there is a strip that may contain water, necessary for the existence of biological life. The terminator zone is the dividing line between the day and night sides of an exoplanet. The “Terminator Zone” on the dark side of distant planets could support…

    Astronomer Jason Dittmann: “Exoplanet LHS 1140 b is ideal for searching for extraterrestrial life”

    (ORDO NEWS) — LHS 1140 b is a massive, rocky exoplanet orbiting a very small and surprisingly calm red dwarf in the habitable zone. The mass of LHS 1140 b is 7 times the mass of the Earth, which means that the exoplanet is a representative of the “Super-Earth” class. LHS 1140 b is 40 light-years from Earth, making it easy to study with ground-based and/or space-based telescopes. The radius…

    Engineers have created a laser to search for extraterrestrial life

    (ORDO NEWS) — Engineers from the University of Maryland (USA) have created a portable laser that can detect organic compounds on the planets and satellites of the solar system. It weighs only about eight kilograms. The new device is a smaller version of the device used in pharmaceutical laboratories for drug testing. A pulsed ultraviolet laser will be able to detect large organic compounds on Mars or on Jupiter’s moon…

    What is the probability of finding intelligent extraterrestrial life in the Milky Way

    (ORDO NEWS) — Physicist Claudio Grimaldi believes that Bayes’ theorem is capable of answering this question, which makes it possible to determine the probability of the realization of an event, provided that some other event interdependent with it was recorded. So, imagine a sphere with a radius of 1000 light years, in the center of which is the Earth. If we scan this area and find at least one alien…

    (ORDO NEWS) — To date, mankind has no evidence of the existence of life outside the Earth. However, it would be strange to say that among the trillions and trillions of stars in the universe, only our tiny planet turned out to be inhabited. To find a habitable planet, or at least designate it as potentially habitable, scientists have to regularly improve existing models of the search for extraterrestrial life.…

    (ORDO NEWS) — A team of astrophysicists at the University of California has found a way to narrow the search for extraterrestrial life. planets orbiting M-dwarfs without an atmosphere also do not have it, and therefore there is no point in looking for living organisms there.. Such conclusions were reached during the observation of the planet GJ 1252b. Its rotation cycle around the parent star is one Earth day. It…

    (ORDO NEWS) — Broccoli, as well as other cruciferous vegetables and some algae, release methyl bromide to flush out toxins from the body. Now American researchers have come to the conclusion that this poisonous gas can serve as an excellent marker of life on other planets. Most cells have special mechanisms to remove harmful substances. Often this process involves methylation the addition of a methyl group (-CH3) to the compound…
