A new exoplanet has been discovered, and it might contain life. Planet GJ 357 d is the right size and is within the habitable zone of its star, but we still have a lot to learn about it. Next-gen telescopes like the ELT (opening in 2025) should be able to determine if it has an atmosphere, which is the precursor to it having liquid water. It’s one of over 4,000 planets that we’ve discovered so far (all within the last 30 yrs), which is a momentous achievement of science and engineering.
