Earth is one of the greatest miracles ever invented. Speculations were running about the inventor, but it is meant to remain a mystery. The earth consists of numerous unexplainable things like for example life. The earth is the third planet closest to the sun, if in high school and college the study of the Universe only includes our solar system, then definitely you are not aware that there are other planets existing in other solar systems. You only knew that the earth is part of the solar system from a galaxy named Milky Way. You see, science can be very interesting once you can relate to it. Do you know something beyond the earth? Or if there is another sun or even about the number of galaxies in the universe? Specifically, there is nothing wrong in knowing them; it is a fact that eventually feeds out your curiosity.
Instead of wondering who made us, and everything living in this world, why can you just appreciate all the magnificent creations you are seeing. Are you even aware that there are planets that have the same classification with Earth? The distance in the universe is measured in light-years, too far to reach but somehow scientists and inventors found ways to communicate with other possible living beings. Science will always be a continuous process, you will always search for an answer and sometimes those answers don’t come easy. Try to feed your brains with nice to know facts like the earth-like planets existing outside our galaxy.
10. Stellar artifact Gliese 581d.
Discoveries started with speculation and proven with facts. But with terrestrial studies, facts can be crucial and unreliable. Since there will be a lot of hindrances on how truthful the findings are, it will always require a more focused research. The Gliese 581d which is known to be 6 times larger than Earth. It is an extrasolar planet which means that the Gliese 581 d is not orbiting in our sun instead it is orbiting the star Gliese 581.Don’t confuse yourself with the names and number of the mentioned planets Gliese 581 is like our sun while the Gliese 581 a, b, c and d where like the planets orbiting it. But the existence of Gliese 581d proposed different facts about being a terrestrial planet.
9.The cloud planet HD 85512 b.
The HD 85512 b is an exoplanet in the constellation of Vela at about 36 light years from earth. This planet is being studied to be one of the habitable worlds in the solar system. Facts like other planets are not taken seriously by ordinary individuals, but studies and evidence shows that their existence is actually true. The HD 85512 b is also known to be the Cloud Planet because it has a 50% cloud cover. Scientists and astronomers say that water could exist with planets that have a percentage of cloud cover like us. But the studies aren’t perfect yet, continuous research and simulations have been conducted until now.
8. A Venus- like planet the Kepler-69c.
The Kepler 69c has almost the same size as earth; it is orbiting the star Kepler 69c which has a sun-like appearance and characteristics. The star Kepler 69 has two known orbiting planets the kepler 69b and kepler 69c. Though there is no evidence of life and water on this planet, astronomers still assume that the planets that are almost or close to the same size of earth can be habitable. Though Kepler 69c is also called a super earth sized exoplanet still it has a percentage of being habitable. Experts say that this planet receives a similar amount of flux from the sun like Venus. Which is not good news for everyone, the amount of flux can be too dangerous for living beings like humans.
7. The unconfirmed planet Tau Ceti e
The Tau Ceti e was discovered last December 2012 through radial velocity. Discoveries can be complicated to understand if you are not in the same field as the astronomers, but then the information and facts presented can be more interesting than the other inventions of this generation. The Tau Ceti e is known to have a like property with earth; it is expected to be 1.8 larger than earth. The atmosphere and temperature of Tau Ceti e is very close to earth, making this planet candidate to habitable stars.It is orbiting its mother star the Tau Ceti between the orbits of Venus and Mercury from the sun. When talking about orbits, each star has its own sequence of orbit even if by distance they seem close to our planet, still their path of orbit makes them literally far from us.
6. Three suns Gliese 667 Cf.
A member of the triple star system, the Gliese 667. The Gliese 667 cf is surrounded by 3 massive stars that are smaller than the sun. The Gliese 667 Cf is just one of the several planets orbiting Gliese though confirmation is still in the process being in the habitable zone of its parent star is enough possibilities that life can be formed on this planet. The habitability of the planet will be unresolved unless new gadgets and the telescope are invented. There are several planets named Gliese and differ with numbers and some letters, though they are like a family of planets in their own solar system, each one has a different percentage of habitability.
5. Peach colored sun Kepler-62f.
A super earth that is considered as a super earth that is most likely covered by ocean. There are several factors that have been taken into studies about the habitability of this planet. According to its planet’s age, the Kepler 62f shows great resemblance to earth. Aside from the age, the radiance and radius, Kepler 62f is now on the run as one of the most habitable planets. If Kepler 62f is really a planet, it is believed that this planet is completely covered by water or frozen. This planet is believed to orbit a star that is cooler than the sun and somehow seen in a peach colored star.
4. New Mars Gliese 667 Cc.
The Gliese 667Cc is considered habitable because of the possibility of water accumulation. You already know from the start that water is a sign of life, that’s what makes every planet candidate for habitability. That is why even if the Gliese 667Cc is believed to be the new mars, the studies are still ongoing. If there are reasons why it can be habitable there is also evidence that might show it in hospitality. Like its temperature and climate, though nothing is yet confirmed, the chances can be higher through a more detailed study. Gliese 667Cc is also part of the three star system of Gliese 667.
3. Kepler-62e.Warm and cloudy
Another super earth that has a high percentage of habitability. This planet is believed to be a water or ice planet. Many researchers said that if your ocean has flown fish what more in a planet full of water? Maybe they have something that has evolved that what we have here. Lots of speculation has popped out since knowing that this planet is full of water and can be full of life. With a great resemblance to the planet earth, Kepler 62-e is not on the run of the most habitable planet. Known to be warm and cloudy because of its humid ambiance and at the same it has a cooler environment than earth.
2. Gliese 581 g.Less famous brother
Gliese 581g is an Unconfirmed planet, but with a high percentage of habitability. Every study about our solar system can be unconfirmed in the majority, since its distance cannot be reached through naked eyes or some apparatus. Studies could run longer than any studies would and sometimes it will remain unconfirmed until a new generation will be interested to continue the study. Since the Gliese 581 g is located near or almost in the middle of the habitable zone of its parent star, more likely researchers assumed and into a probability of a habitable environment. According to Lisa-Joy Zgorski the habitability percentage of this planet is 100%, regardless of what being is living there but the chances i present.
1. Kepler-22b.Future Home
Now first on our list, the Kepler 33-b is considered and as what they say confirmed its future home. Though nobody is really aiming to transfer one planet to another, the thought of having the same planet earth is quite exciting. It would be like; you know you have a brother or a sister, though it’s far from a planet towards another. The habitability of Kepler 22b is based on its orbit. Known to the researchers that Kepler 22-b is orbiting in the habitable zone of its host star and its percentage is higher compared to others. But what makes this planet unique is that the resemblance from size and appearance might be equal with the earth.
