Scientists make unprecedented detection on a planet 700 light-years away


Now, for the first time, they've discovered "a full menu" of atoms and molecules in an exoplanet's clouds, and some are interacting. This latest detection proves that astronomers can peer into the atmospheres of strange exoplanets and decipher what's transpiring or being made chemically — and if these worlds might then contain conditions that could potentially harbor life. (On our planet, atmospheric chemistry, which is responsible for creating the likes of an insulating atmosphere and the protective ozone layer, is vital for life.)
