10 planets that have the potential to replace Earth
1. Star Teegarden b
The planet revolves around Teegarden, a planet with the potential to become the second Earth to date. With an index of about 60% of the surface with a temperate climate, a temperature of about 28 degrees C, Teegarden is 95% more like our Earth.
This planet is located about 40 light-years away from us. According to studies, Trappist 1-e is an exoplanet with potential for life, the index reaches approximately 95% when compared to the Earth.
As a "brother" of TRAPPIST-1e, the planet is also considered to be viable. The temperature here is very similar to the Earth, there may even exist atmospheres, oceans or ice sheets on the surface. Scientists think the planet is 89% similar to the Earth.
The planet orbits Kepler 438, discovered by NASA spacecraft. Scientists speculate that water may exist on the surface of this planet. However, some studies also show that the planet is subjected to intense radiation over a 100-day period, making life difficult to survive. Currently, the planet is considered to be 88% more like the Earth.
5. Proxima Centauri b
The planet orbits Proxima Centauri, which is thought to have life with liquid water and atmosphere. However, the ability to bring people to live on this planet seems impossible, because the planet is located in the tidal zone, meaning that half of the planet is always facing the sun and the other side is covered by darkness. forever. Life only exists at the border of these two states. The planet is thought to be 87% Earth-like.
This exoplanet is one of the most Earth-like planets in terms of size and temperature. Overall, the planet is 84% similar to the Earth.
7. EPIC 201238110.02
This is a recently discovered exoplanet, with potential similar to the Earth. The star EPIC 201238110 is about 522 light-years away, located between Leo and Virgo constellations.
8. Star Teegarden c
Located 12 light-years from us, this exoplanet is a planet capable of discovering life. The surface temperature of this star is as low as Mars, about -47 degrees Celsius. According to ESI, the planet is 68% like the Earth.
9. Wolf 1061c
Located at a distance of 13.8 light-years from the Earth, this planet is quite close to studying life. This star orbits Wolf 1061, with liquid water on its surface. The planet is currently under further research, but astronauts say it is 76% similar to the Earth.
10. Ross 128 b
This is the planet closest to us outside the solar system, orbiting a red dwarf star and potentially having life. If the planet had an atmosphere and temperature suitable to maintain liquid water on the surface, it would make the planet look 86% Earth-like.
