Planets Near Dying Stars Could Be A Good Place To Look For Alien Life
Researchers say looking only for planets that orbit stars like our sun is too narrow-minded.By Ryan Biek | May 17, 2016
Our hunt for alien life may be too narrow-minded. Scientists at Cornell University are arguing if we want to find life on other planets, we can't just search for stars like our sun.
They say planets spinning around older, dying stars are good candidates, as well.
So far, the search has been pretty logical. Earth has life, so why not look for other planets that mimic Earth's conditions?
