Water found at exoplanet with right temperatures for life

Scientists have discovered water at a planet outside our solar system, claiming it has temperatures suitable for life. Two research groups announced that they’ve found water vapor in the atmosphere of planet K2-18b, 110 light-years away in the constellation Leo. However, the lead author for the project stressed, ’This is definitely not a second Earth’. K2-18b is twice the size of Earth.
