    Default Binary stars prime candidates for alien life, scientists discover

    Binary star systems could be prime candidates for alien life, according to a new study from the University of Sheffield.

    Researchers have developed a model which predicts the range of the so-called habitable zone, the distance a planet can be from a star and still retain the liquid water which is essential for life.

    Everywhere humanity has found liquid water, it has also found life - although that is solely in regards to our own planet, which occupies the sun's habitable zone.

    Planets which are too close to the sun, if they held water, saw it boiled away into the atmosphere and off into outer space by the heat. On those which are too distant from the sun, the water has frozen into ice.
