Hubble traces subtle signals of water on hazy worlds

Using the powerful eye of NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, scientists have found faint signatures of water in the atmospheres of five distant planets. The presence of atmospheric water was reported previously on a few exoplanets orbiting stars beyond our solar system, but this is the first study to conclusively measure and compare the profiles and intensities of these signatures on multiple worlds.

Perhaps then, is there life or fossils in other planets? But, isn’t the emergence and maintenance of life a process of radical contingency ? That is, is a unique and unrepeatable past totally necessary? Or rather, does life emerge through space like mushrooms in the field when some conditions are present? So, how many conditions are necessary: three, four, trillions, infinite? Only one, water or any sort of God? Is God the word that means infinite conditions? And, how did the life that emerge in a given conditions resist when switching to a different moment? How does life resist time itself, the effects of entropy? Anyway, is it possible for human beings to recognise a simpler life than their own brain only? On the other hand, is it possible to recognise a complex life than their brain, is this the extra-terrestrial life that some people are searching unsuccessfully? But, is there an origin of life or would it be as finding a cut in the material history of the universe, an infinite void that human language patches now? Is this the same cut between life and death? What would you and me be without this cut? To better understand life, or be healthily confused, an science-artistic book, a public preview in http://goo.gl/IUlSMu Only another recommendation
