Earth is not the only planet suitable for life. Scientists have selected a number of exoplanets located in the “super-habitable zone”. They can be a great place for the development of living organisms.
Experts have discovered more than two dozen planets outside the solar system, the conditions on which may be even better than on the Earth. There are older, larger, warmer, and wetter worlds. 24 planets are a hundred light years away.
The discovery was made possible thanks to new telescopes. Scientists have received a lot of information, now it is important to highlight the key goals and follow them. Specialists must identify specific planets with promising conditions.
“There are definitely planets in deep space that are perfect for the existence of organisms”, said Dirk Schulze-Makuch of the Technical University of Berlin.
Scientists managed to analyze 4,500 exoplanets, isolating only 24 of them. Suitability for life does not mean that these bodies have any forms of even the simplest creatures. All planets have stars with a long life span.
Our Sun, for example, will last about 10 billion years. It took 4 billion years for life to appear on Earth.
Unfortunately, none of the 24 open planets has all the key factors at once that would contribute to the development of life. At the same time, it cannot be said that the Earth also has all the best. Many creatures on our planet have adapted to extreme conditions. This is the key to successful survival.
Who knows, maybe smart life has developed on other planets as well?
