Do you know that there are similar planets like Earth? You’ll be amazed to find this out!
In short, Earth is not the only habitable planet in the milky way?
As a matter of fact, there are several superhabitable planets than the Earth. If you don’t have any idea about this, well, this will be your lucky day.
The standard definition for a habitable planet is one that can sustain life for a significant period of time. As far as researchers know, this requires a planet to have liquid water.
A superhabitable planet is a hypothetical type of exoplanet or exomoon that may be better suited than Earth for the emergence and evolution of life.
According to these authors, such superhabitable worlds would likely be larger, warmer, and older than Earth, and orbiting K-type main-sequence stars.
Based on the findings, the Kepler team estimated there to be “at least 50 billion planets in the Milky Way” of which “at least 500 million” are in the habitable zone.
A 2015 review concluded that the exoplanets Kepler-62f, Kepler-186f and Kepler-442b were likely the best candidates for being potentially habitable. These are at a distance of 1,200, 490 and 1,120 light-years away, respectively
