  18. <p class="dotted">The finding makes the world - which is called K2-18b - a plausible candidate in the search for alien life. </p>
  19. <p class="dashed"> Within 10 years, new space telescopes might be able to determine whether K2-18b's atmosphere contains gases that could be produced by living
  21. organisms.</p>
  22. <p class="double"> Details were published in the scientific journal Nature Astronomy.</p>
  23. <p class="groove"> The lead scientist, Prof Giovanna Tinetti of University College London (UCL) described the discovery as "mind blowing".</p>
  24. <p class="ridge"> "This is the first time that we have detected water on a planet in the habitable zone around a star where the temperature is potentially compatible with the
  26. presence of life," she said.</p>
  27. <p class="insert">The habitable zone is the region around a star where temperatures are sufficiently benign for water to exist in liquid form on the surface of a planet. </p>
  28. <p class="outset">K2-18b is 111 light-years - about 650 million million miles - from Earth, too far to send a probe </p>
  29. <p class="hidden">"This is one of the biggest questions in science and we have always wondered if we are alone in the Universe," Dr Waldmann said. </p>
