引句:
The search for life outside our Solar System could be accelerated following the discovery of a new class of habitable exoplanet by University of Cambridge researchers. Dubbed “Hycean planets”, these ocean-covered worlds have hydrogen-rich atmospheres and it is believed they could support microbial life similar to that found in some of Earth's most extreme aquatic environments … Bizarrely, such planets also include tidally-locked "dark" Hycean worlds that may have habitable conditions only on their permanent night sides.
