Top 10 Most Habitable Planets
One day life on earth will die. However, we can still if we are able to colonize habitable planets. Below is the list of the top 10 habitable planets.
10. Kepler 62f
Kepler 62f is located at 990 lights years away from the earth. The planet is located in the habitable zone of the star Kepler 62f which is a star similar to sun and has a mass of 0.69 times the mass of sun. The planet has a radius of around 1.41 times that of the earth. It receives 41% the sunlight that earth does from the sun. Much is not known about the planet but is thought to be rocky or ocean covered planet.
9. Gliese 667 cc
Gliese 667 Cc is located at 23.62 light years away from earth. The planet has a three star system it receives about 90% light of earth. It has a mass of 3.7 times the mass of earth. The average temperature of the planet is thought to be around 4.3 Degree Celsius. It is tidally locked which means one of its side faces the sun and other side is in permanent darkness.
Kepler -186f is a planet located at 582 light years away from the earth. The planet is located in the Kepler-186 star. The star is has mass of 0.54 times of the sun. The planet has an orbital period of 129.9 days. The planet may have a temperature of zero degrees Celsius.
7. Proxima Centauri B
Proxima Centauri B is the closet habitable planet to earth. It is located at a distance of 4.2 light years. The planet orbits a start which has a mass of 0.12 times the mass of sun. It is about 1.3 times bigger than earth. It has orbital period of 11.2 earth days and it is tidally locked with the sun.
Trappist-1d is a small exoplanet with mass equal to 30% the mass of earth. It is located 40 light years away from earth. The planet is thought to be a rocky planet. The temperature on Trappist-1d could be between 9 and -18 degrees Celsius. If the planet has correct atmospheric property liquid water could exist on Trappist-1d.
5. Kapteyn b
Kapteyn b is a planet located at 12.8 light years away from earth. The planet orbit a red dwarf star which is 11 billion years old compared to our sun which is 4.6 billion years old. The planet is thought to be a rocky planet. It completes orbit around its star every 48.62 days.
4. Kepler 442b
Kepler 442b is located 1206 light years away from the earth. The planet is 2.34 times massive than earth. The gravity on Kepler 442b would be 30% more than on earth. The planet is thought to have a rocky surface. The planet has a orbital period of 112.3 days.
3. Kepler 452b
Kepler 452b is 1830 light years away from earth. The planet is thought to have mass five times that of earth. The planet has a star which similar to sun which is 11% larger than sun. The planet also has orbital period of 385 days close to earth’s orbital period of 365 days.
2. Ross 128b
Ross 128b is a exoplanet located at a distance of 11 light years from earth. The planet is 35% more massive than earth. However, it receives only 38% more sunlight than earth. The planet is tidally locked but, if the planet has correct atmosphere then liquid water can exist on this planet.
1. Kepler 438b
Kepler 438b is a planet located at distance of 640 light years from earth. The planet has a radius of 1.12 times the radius of earth. The temperature on this planet could be 3 degrees Celsius. The planet lies in the habitable zone where water can exist in liquid state.
