Earth may be the only planet that we know of that supports life, but that doesn’t mean it’s the best one for it. A new study, published in the scientific journal Astrobiology, has identified 24 potentially “superhabitable” planets that may have conditions more suited to host life. They could be slightly older than the Earth (4.5 billion years old), “a little larger, slightly warmer and possibly wetter.” They may also orbit stars with longer lifespans than the sun, the researchers found. “With the next space telescopes coming up, we will get more information, so it is important to select some targets,” Washington State University scientist Dirk Schulze-Makuch said in a statement obtained by Fox News. “We have to focus on certain planets that have the most promising conditions for complex life. However, we have to be careful to not get stuck looking for a second Earth because there could be planets that might be more suitable for life than ours… (READ MORE)
