Observations of the alien planet Kepler-7b (shown here compared to Jupiter) suggest it is covered in patchy clouds. A new study suggests that Earth-like exoplanets with clouds might have better chances for life depending on their spin and orbit near their parent stars.

Research trio suggests exomoon atmospheres could cause false-positive signs of life on exoplanets, team suggest that current assumptions regarding using spectral signatures as a means to identify exoplanets that may harbor life, has a major flaw—a false positive could occur if the planet has a moon with an atmosphere that contaminates the spectrum.
