“With all this hoopla about a planet with water in its atmosphere, let me make this clear: It’s a gas giant. It’s far more like Neptune than Earth. The story here isn’t that the planet is habitable (it isn’t). It’s the fact that water *could* be found using modern techniques.”

For the first time, astronomers have detected water vapor and possibly signs of clouds and even rain in the air of a potentially habitable exoplanet.

Hubble telescope spies water raining on distant world

Water vapor has been found in the atmosphere of a distant planet that’s just over twice the size of Earth. It’s the smallest world yet found with water in its surrounding atmosphere, and it’s possible that it even rains liquid water there.Though alien life probably doesn’t exist there.

Water vapor — and maybe even rain — found on distant world twice the size of Earth - The Verge

Water has been discovered for the first time in the atmosphere of an exoplanet with Earth-like temperatures that could support life as we know it, scientists revealed Wednesday. Eight times the mass of Earth and twice as big, K2-18b orbits in its star's "habitable zone" at a distance -Water has been discovered for the first time in the atmosphere of an exoplanet with Earth-like temperatures that could support life as we know it, scientists revealed Wednesday.

Water discovered for first time in atmosphere of habitable exoplanet

K2-18b, which is eight times the mass of Earth, is now the only planet orbiting a star outside the Solar System, or 'exoplanet', known to have both water and temperatures that could support life.

First water detected on potentially 'habitable' planet

Scientists have found water vapour on a “super-Earth” for the first time – in a major step forward in the search for alien life. The exoplanet, known as K2-18b, is perhaps the best candidate seen yet for supporting life on another world. “This represents the biggest step yet taken towards our ultimate goal of finding life on other planets, of proving that we are not alone,”Scientists have found water vapour on a “super-Earth” for the first time – in a major step forward in the search for alien life.

Water is not uncommon to find in our galaxy in ice or gaseous form, but liquid water is quite rare — and liquid and gaseous water on an Earth-like exoplanet? That's never been observed... until now. Astronomers spotted this celestial unicorn, called K2-18 b, using the venerable Hubble space telescope.Water is not uncommon to find in our galaxy in ice or gaseous form, but liquid water is quite rare — and liquid and gaseous water on an Earth-like exoplanet?
