Not surprising - this had to come - but exciting! Two independent groups have found water in the atmosphere around an exoplanet in the habitable zone around its star.

K2 18 b lives a life somewhere between that of Earth and Neptune ... but the only place a human might want to go is apparently in a narrow band of clouds.

>3 Rood: Possibly. But a thousand or a hundred thousand years from now, if there is a thousand or a hundred thousand years from now, there will be a long history of the discovery of exoplanets. Maybe or maybe not that will actual visits. But in any case, there will be a timeline of the course of that discovery. And one entry on the timeline will say “2019: First discovery of water associated with an exoplanet.”
