A change in Jupiter’s orbit could make Earth even friendlier to life

A shift in Jupiter’s orbit could make Earth’s surface even more hospitable to life than it already is, new research suggests.

University of California-Riverside (UCR) scientists simulated alternative arrangements of our solar system, finding that when Jupiter’s orbit was more flattened  —  or ‘eccentric’  —  it would cause major changes in our planet’s orbit too.
