Wobbly Jets of Binary Star  Chances of Hosting Life

Systems May Affect

Earth is the only planet

 known to host life so researchers have usually focused on planets similar to our own when searching for life.

But new research suggests

that planetary systems form differently around binary stars than they do around solo stars like the sun

Nearly 50% all sun-size

 stars are binary stars, and if the theory is confirmed, it could double the number of systems that researchers might want to probe.

The study was based 

on the observations of the young binary star system NGC 1333-IRAS2A using the ALMA telescopes in Chile

That system, located 

about 1,000 light-years away, is enveloped in a disk of gas and dust that could one day create a planetary system.
