NASA discovers 'blue planet' 63 light-years away

NASA announced Hubble Space Telescope has found a true blue planet out in the alien world. "Astronomers making visible-light observations with NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have deduced the actual color of a planet orbiting another star 63 light-years away," NASA said.  The planet — HD 189733b — is one of the closest exoplanets that can be seen crossing the face of its star. "We saw the light becoming less bright in the blue but not in the green or red. Light was missing in the blue but not in the red when it was hidden," said research team member Frederic Pont
 Do you think there is life elsewhere in the universe?

  1. Another step and discovery to explore the world! Great achievement on the part of astronomers as for the first time they have been able to find out the colour of a planet.
    As far as the question is concerned, I would say that man is busy in finding the answer of this question since the time immemorial and still it seems improbable to believe that there is life elsewhere in the universe.
