Caption: Comet approaching Earth-like planet. Computer illustration of an asteroid on an impact course with an alien Earth-like planet (upper right). Earth-like planets capable of supporting life are found only in a star's habitable zone, a region around a star where the surface temperature of a planet is suitable for liquid water. It is thought that this water may have been brought to barren planets by icy asteroids that collided with them.
