A selection of scientists have introduced a new concept that small gas planets that are similar to Neptune could be discovered in the near future and it is quite probable that they might be used as habitats. The research was published in Astrobiology. The study gives us a demonstration with the help of which computer models predict where gas planets may support life.

Various conditions can be met to make life possible on a planet just as Neptune. Researchers with the University of Washington say that strong stellar activity and tidal forces are the two most important ones. The gas planets revolve around stars, of low mass, that are called M dwarfs and are much m...
