Edwin Kite, Assistant professor of geophysical sciences at UChicago said that Astronomers assume that planets consisting of deep oceans would not support the cyclic process of gases, plants that maintains a medium on Earth and thus form a friendly life. The study published in ‘The Astrophysical Journal’ says that ocean planets could have habitability periods longer than the previous assumptions. “This really throws back against the idea you need an Earth clone where it can be achieved with a new planet having some land and a shallow ocean”.
As telescopes being advanced, scientists are about to find more and more planets along with orbiting stars in other solar systems. Such discoveries are upraising the hope to search for the new water world planets. Scientists usually look for planets that maintain a stable climate in addition to water presence on it. While coming to earth, since the long time period our planet cools itself by drawing down greenhouse gases into minerals and warms itself by releasing volcanos, but scientists think that this model doesn’t work on a water world with deep water covering the rock and suppressing volcanoes because of their stable behavior for more than a billion years.
Those planets with all scenarios sit in the right location around their stars where they happened to have the sufficient amount of carbon dioxide and have all the other required characteristics and they cycle carbon between the atmosphere and ocean only within the is sufficient range to keep things stable.
Planets like the earth are basically dependent on carbon dioxide and how it has been sub-categorized into the ocean, atmosphere, and rocks in its early years. These simulations, when assumed with the other stars, feel like they are our own. Planets in red dwarf systems are thought to be promising for fostering life because these stars get brighter slowly when compared to the sun and give longer lifespan eventually.
