Alpha Centauri AB
November 20, 2019
There's new hope that advanced beings may exist on exoplanets. A new study on the dynamics of axis tilts of exoplanets in Goldilocks zones says about 87% of planets like Earth in two-star, or binary, systems should have axes conducive to the evolution of complex life. But in the star system nearest us, Alpha Centauri AB, the study pours some water on those hopes.

The study, based on samples from Ecuadorian children, also found that a common strain of the E. coli bacterium may be more virulent than previously believed.
