More planets could harbour life
New computer models suggest there could be many more habitable planets out there than previously thought.
Scientists have developed models to help them identify planets in far-away solar systems that are capable of supporting life.
Estimates of habitable planet numbers have been based on the likelihood of them having surface water.
But a new model allows scientists to identify planets with underground water kept liquid by planetary heat.
The research was presented at the British Science Festival in Aberdeen.
