NASA Discovers That The Super Earth Is Located In A Human Livable Area 31 Years From Earth
According to US media reports, NASA's transiting exoplanet measuring satellite recently discovered that a planet GJ 357d, 31 years from Earth, is located in a human livable area and the planet orbits stars with other planets.
Some scientists said that if the planet has a dense atmosphere, it is very likely to retain liquid water on the surface like the earth, and thus "has a livable condition similar to the earth", and in the future it will become a "super earth" capable of sustaining life.
According to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), if there is no atmosphere, the Earth's equilibrium temperature will be below minus 64 degrees, which will make it "cold and uninhabitable."
It is also worth noting that the Kaltenegger team first discovered another planet, GJ 357 b, when NASA's Planetary Hunting Interplanetary Planetary Survey Satellite (TESS) was used in early 2019. This is a "hot earth" that rotates around the little sun.
The Kaltenegger team stated that it is likely that in the future, more advanced equipment will be used to collect and further analyze the light of these planets and to identify the atmospheric composition of these planets and to search for signs of liquid water or oxygen.
