Two teams of scientists have found faint but clear signatures of water in the atmospheres of five distant exoplanets. Although atmospheric water has been detected before on a few distant planets, these studies are the first to conclusively determine its presence.
Using NASAâ€™s powerful Hubble Space Telescope, the scientists were able for the first time to measure and compare the chemical profiles and intensities of water signatures on multiple worlds.
