Want To Live On An Icy Snowball Of A Planet?

According to Digital Trends, astronomers say an exoplanet should be a rocky planet that lies in the habitable zone.

That's the area of distance from a star at which water can exist on a planet’s surface as liquid.

But a new study suggests that even frozen, icy planets could be theoretically capable of supporting life.

Canadian researchers looked at Earth-sized “snowball planets,” which have oceans that are frozen all the way to their equators.
