The Search for Habitable Worlds




Today on Far Future Horizons we go in search of habitable worlds within our galaxy. 


Thus far, in this great age of planet hunting, we have yet to find anything like our solar system with rocky inner worlds in neat circular orbits, and evenly spaced Jovian gas giants on the periphery. 




Instead, astronomers have glimpsed a diverse planetary menagerie, with giant planets in wide orbits around their parent stars, others that swing in so close they leave a comet-like tail, or molten rocky worlds emblazoned with oceans of lava.





These finds have added new complexity to theories of how solar systems emerge with the birth of a star and the search for habitable life bearing planets.
