Exoplanet Discoveries and Updates

We have a few hot water worlds (pyrohydrothallassic worlds) such as Wasat

They are common, but they are a little inhospitable for most Terran bionts. Perhaps we could work out a viable strategy for utilising these warm worlds.

One problem is that most lifeforms, and most complex computational systems, work best when there is an energy gradient. There is plenty of energy in a pyrohydrothallassic environment, but it is very well mixed and so the energy gradients are shallow. Any lifeform or computational system that wants to get rid of waste heat would find this a problem on such a world.
