The development of life occurs only if the planet’s surface the processes of weathering.
According to researchers, the development of life occurs only if the planet’s surface the processes of weathering — breaking of rock from exposure to water or atmospheric gases. Phosphorus gets into the oceans by streams of rain water with sushi, but if sushi is not, then the maintenance required for the life of the element is three to four times less than on Earth.
In this case, if the living organisms on the planet-the ocean still appear, they resemble microscopic algae, and their number is too small to saturate the atmosphere with oxygen at concentrations typical of Earth. To see signs of life on these objects by using powerful space telescopes would be impossible, therefore, according to the researchers, it is necessary to pay attention to planets with less water on the surface.
According to scientists, this indicates that the number of habitable planets smaller than previously thought. Even if a celestial body is at the optimal distance from the parent star and the existence of liquid water on it, it may not be a sufficient condition for the emergence of organisms.
