Washington State University in the United States recently announced a study. The team found 24 planets more habitable than Earth. The degree of suitability even exceeds that of the Earth. After the news was exposed, it triggered discussion from the outside world.
According to reports, Washington State University developed a set of standards suitable for human habitation based on 4,500 known extrasolar planets to determine the habitability of the planets. It was found that there are 24 “super habitable” planets in the universe, some of which are “super habitable”. Planets are older than the Earth, and some are warmer and wetter. The research team explains that these factors create better conditions for the development of complex life.
However, since the discovered planets are all more than 100 light-years away from the Earth, observation is still difficult, but the research team emphasized that these discoveries can provide a lot of information for the future. However, the team emphasizes that although these planets meet the conditions for superhabitability, this does not mean that they are actually habitable.
Professor Dirk Schulze-Makuch, one of the team members, said that before a new generation of astronomical telescopes are released, it is very important for them to first identify some “goals”. “We must focus on some of the most suitable for complex telescopes,” he said. “We must be careful not to get trapped in the search for a second Earth, because there may be planets more suitable for life than ours.”
