  • 24 are considered as super habitable

Is earth the only habitable planet that exists in the universe? or there are various other planets that are adaptable than the one we live in, yes though earth's each part has life accompanied with beauty and charisma, there also exist on the vast planetary surface above the celestial bodies that are adaptable and are probably brimming with life. A study conducted by Washington State University highlighted in 2020 October that there are super habitable planets that are more suitable for life forms than our home. There are about 4,000 exo-planets that have been identified among which 24 of them have been considered as super habitable. These planets are more massive or larger than earth; an ideal size is about 10 percent more than our planet and can be even warmer than the earth. A paper published in Astrobiology explains the reasons for the existence of such planets. A planet with greater chances of life might also have other potential life forms like that we know as aliens, a planet can be better for adaptation because of various reasons one of it can be that the sun has a larger life span than the yellow dwarf that provides heat to the Earth. There are two types of stars i.e. G and K, among which our sun is a G star and its lifeline is shorter compared to K stars- other planets span is observed to about 5-8 billion years while our earth has a life of only 4.5 billion. This increases the chances of longer life and sustenance. One of such planets is called KOI 5715.01 which is almost 3,000 light-years away from the earth. Some among them are also 100 light-years far from Earth; it is not easy to observe these planets from earth unless there are strong and advanced telescopic instruments. Out of the large arena of space, a part of it is marked by the research team as the habitable zone, the region around the planets and stars were water or liquid can exist, are warmer, and showcase the existence of habitation. The super habitable planets can probe our future life and development if technology improves in the future to an extent that one could travel and live in a new habitation- these celestial objects can allow us to explore and get a hope of longer life. The world beyond this can only be explored when life beyond thrives; this identification can be of immense help in all our future endeavors.
