What about visiting a gas giant planet that exists right next to a star in the galaxy? If you have, then you’ve probably already spotted this intriguing fact: There are many habitable worlds that exist in the Milky Way Galaxy.

This discovery came as a surprise to researchers who were astounded by how similar these planets look to our own sun. They were also astonished by their surprisingly close similarities to the Earth and to other rocky terrestrial planets in our solar system. Now that astronomers have studied this phenomenon with more detail, they have deduced that there could be at least ten such habitable exotics out in the cosmos. In other words, there may be another planet beyond the “habitable zone” that is capable of supporting life.

The discovery was made possible through a study conducted by the European Southern Observatory, using the Very Large Telescope (VLIT). The study also involved the Herschel telescope. It was the outcome of a five year study period. During this study, the astronomers used space and ground technologies to detect small celestial bodies that could potentially be suitable places for having a life. Among these celestial bodies are several very small stars similar to our own sun.
