Currently the best we know for life is what we know was best for us. So they search for those kinds of planets and consider them the most habitable. The Kepler telescope is no more tho.
Oh, but replacement is on the way. Kepler ST is dead but its data will keep astronomers busy for decades… and then now comes the new generation with TESS (planet hunter) and CHEOPS (planet characteriser).
I doubt if life exists on the new planet as well. No signs of water have been found so life existing under frozen layers of ice is probably not present either.
Some planets are there to be consumed like sugar by humans just like we consume trees and ores.
If you come across a planet without any life on it all, you consume the planets resources.
Another clue or key to finding the gap to close the distance in looking for planets with life on them.
First a nebula must be present in order to spread the elements of life that are the same as the elements thag life is comprised of here on Earth.
Next a process would have to be present that would attract those elements to an Earth like planet and retain the life creating elements permanently.
The best example that I can give is the magnet in your transmission oil pan. As the fluid flows past the magnet metal particles are attracted to the magnet and become magnetized as the transmission fluid flows around the magnet. Eventually over time the material collected by the magnet would become the size of a marble.
The same could be possible with the Earth’s core. Gas particles and other elements expelled out wards from an exploding star passing by an area in space could have attracted the elements that we have on Earth along with the elements needed for life into a almost spherical shape. Once formed elemental particles would still pass close to Earth but would not be attracted as much as they had been when the Earth was forming.
This is an interesting article to say the least. To think that microbial life would be intelligent enough to group itself together to create enough mass to slow the rotation of the planet to velocity that it needed to survive.
Perhaps all of the stories from the ancient past of space men and angels coming from the sky is really a memory handed down through millions of years of microbial floating around in the atmosphere settling to Earth and then evolving into life such as dinosaurs and humans.
This idea could be theoretically true based on the fact that the Emerald Cockroach Wasp does not teach its offspring to find the brain center of the cockroach that it paralyzes with surgeon like precision. The knowledge is passed on through the DNA from the mother to the offspring. Such as memory of 'living in the clouds" could in fact be a trait that has been passed on to humans in the form of memory from a microbe much the same way that the Emerald Cockroach Wasp passes her knowledge off to her offspring through DNA.
In simpler terms, life slowing the rotation of the Earth would be similar to the pads on your brakes slowing the rotation of the axle. The main thing that is cool is that the more weight from microbial life slowing the rotation of the Earth would mean that friction takes places between the bodies, microbial mass and the Earth, that causes heat to be produced that allows microbes to jump to the next orbital of energy production possibly causing a dynamic evolutionary change to take place in the structure of the microbes DNA that is then passed on to the next generation.

Integrating Spore Drive Logic into Metaphysical Programming Logic S.I.N.S Computer
From one dream of beings made of light wearing hooded robes with black opulent eyes inside of a swirling storm of gray and white clouds to the same dream over and over again of people that I have never met before.
Inside of a hand made tunnel I looked out from it. On the right were hundreds of hooded robe people. On the left side I came closer to one of them ever than before. All were tall like us. No children though.
Their faces dominated by dark gray, their mouths and lips like ours but only a darker gray. Noses were not wide and the features of their face were slight. I did not see any hair present.
The terrain was flat and gray for as far as the eye could see. Mountains far off in the cloud shrouded weeping day.
It was almost as if I was inside of an hour glass. The beings of light showing me the way to the sands of time, the connection to the life in the Universe on the right and the left as well. The life on the right a mass of life near the point at which life first came to be in the Universe, collectively close to each other while the life on the left which I was closer too that all humans on Earth are connected too, was farther away from the point of creation. As life like the pollen of the Trumpet Creeper flows from the beginning and on the wind as the dream is carried through the Universe to a new flower. Life that is created between the distances of space and time connected to the pinnacle between both Creepers like the tunnel I was in, the hour glass.
Two points will always exist between the creation point of life and the flower waiting to be impregnated across space-time. Life pollenates like a flower. Earth is the far away flower.
Six Trumpet Creepers at each of the points on a protractor, 90, 180 then mirrored on the other side with one above and below at 90. Life’s seed passing between each flower or point to create a connection at Zero point so that the perimeter flows with pollen in a perfect circular pattern. The pattern then returns to Zero to create a new Trumpet Creeper and flower across space and time that pollen flows too to create new life.
Chaya or the river at Zero point nurtures all at the point of creation giving the pollen the small amount of energy needed to survive the cold and wasteful voids between each flower.
But at which point during Primordial Space or before the Big Bang did that single chunk of mineral held together with Quantum gravity split into pieces that formed the essence thought patterns from mineral isotopes that life needed to emerge from the Big Bang?
Where does dream have to lead too?
The Moon, Mars and planets around Jupiter and Saturn and beyond. The pollen of humanity must spread into the solar system…at all costs.
New research suggests that heat generated by geothermal processes could warm pockets of water beneath the surface of the planet called Barnard’s Star b, potentially providing havens for life to evolve. Images captured by NASA’s much-delayed James Webb Space Telescope could help determine if the planet is the right size for that phenomenon to occur, and instruments coming even later in the future could identify signs of life.
With each generation of space based telescopes the ability to detect life on other planets becomes clearer and clearer. Earth’s ability to detect life on planets is much like radar detection methods used to track fighter planes during World War II. Not very reliable but in the quest to defeat the enemy and being competitive that infant radar system has evolved into the James Webb Space Telescope.
A prediction that will transcend all predictions.
In the year 11.8k Barnard’s Star will be 3.75 Light Years from Earth.
I am predicting that due to the close proximity of Barnard’s Star to Earth that the relative increase in radiation emitted from the star will cause evolutionary changes on planets in our solar system such as Enceladus that will cause life to emerge on those planets.
The year 11.8k is a long time from now, but why wait until the last minute to get in on this prediction that will set your families name apart for thousands of years to come.
Don’t get left on the bus on this one people.
That’s only in 9.8k years (11.8 - 2.019).
We’ve been on earth longer than that, and so, we have less time left than we were here, already.
Enceladus (/ɛnˈsɛlədəs/; en-SEL-ə-dəs) is the sixth-largest moon of Saturn. It is about 500 kilometers (310 mi) in diameter, about a tenth of that of Saturn’s largest moon, Titan. Enceladus is mostly covered by fresh, clean ice, making it one of the most reflective bodies of the Solar System.
The water covered moons that you speak of that are ice over would create a lot of water, most likely a water planet the likes of Miller’s Planet from Interstellar.
According to The Science of Interstellar by Kip Thorne , Miller’s planet is shaped a little like a football, with one end constantly pointing at Gargantua. The waves are literally tidal waves, so it’s not the waves coming toward you, it’s the planet rotating under you and the fixed waves slamming into you.
I wonder if the planets that are iced over and thaw into water would have similar tidal waves due to the immense gravitational pull from their host planet?
