24 other planets more hospitable than the Earth, finds study

Oct 06, 2020 19:09 IST

A new study says that our planet Earth may not be the best planet in the universe for life. Researchers from Washington State University have identified 24 'super habitable' planets outside our solar system that they say may have conditions more suitable for life than the Earth. Publishing their findings in the journal Astrobiology, the team noted that the 24 planets are all 100 light-years away, making it nearly impossible for us to see them up close, but future telescopes could help in gathering more information about their world. One of the researchers said we must practice precaution and not get stuck looking only for a 'second Earth' because there could be planets far 'more suitable for life than ours.'
