'Would you like a little ice with your exoplanet?' For Earth-like worlds, that may be a tall order
’Would you like a little ice with your exoplanet?’ For Earth-like worlds, that may be a tall order
Exoplanets are experiencing a stratospheric rise. In the three decades since the first confirmed planet orbiting another star, scientists have catalogued more than 4,000 of them. As the list grows, so too does the desire to find Earth-like exoplanets - and to determine whether they could be life-sustaining oases like our own globe.

Iron integral to the development of life on Earth - and the possibility of life on other planets
Researchers at the University of Oxford uncover the importance of iron for the development of complex life on Earth - which also may hint at the likelihood of complex life on other planets. Iron is an essential nutrient that almost all life requires to grow and thrive. Iron's importance goes all the way back to the formation of the planet Earth, where the amount of iron in the Earth's rocky mantle was 'set' by the conditions under which the planet formed and went on to have major ramifications for how life developed.
