Two suns could up chances of habitable 'Exomoons'
Scientists have claimed that two sun-like stars are always better and moons in close binary solar systems have a better chance of hosting life than those in single-star systems.
Paul Mason, an astrophysicist at the University of Texas at El Paso, said that the ideal circumstance is solar twins and solar-type stars with companions work really well, Discovery News reported.
He said it works better than our own solar-type star without a companion and there is a plenty of room for several habitable planets and these may be places where many worlds in system could be habitable.
Mason added that exomoons in binary systems may be more habitable than around single stars and maybe less common, but potentially more habitable.
