NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has detected traces of water in the atmospheres of five planets beyond our solar system, recent studies reveal.

The exoplanets with traces of water are all scorching-hot, Jupiter-size worlds that are unlikely to host life as we know it. But finding water in their atmospheres still marks a step forward in the search for distant planets that may one day help us find another earth.

NASA’s Kepler telescope was in fact launched to find other planets just like Earth, and every year that search is getting closer to discovering exoplanets like Earth.
