According to people who have never lived there:
Astrobiologists have identified 24 exoplanets that aren’t just potentially habitable, they’re potentially superhabitable, exhibiting an array of conditions more suitable to life than what’s seen on Earth.
The saying these days among environmentally conscious people is that there is no Planet B, but a new paper published in Astrobiology suggests otherwise. A research team led by Dirk Schulze-Makuch from Washington State University has identified 24 exoplanets with conditions that could make them more suitable for life than Earth, making them “superhabitable.” Sadly, all these exoplanets are farther away than 100 light-years, so people wanting to get off this shitshow of a planet shouldn’t pack their bags just yet…
For exoplanets to be superhabitable, they should be older, larger, heavier, warmer, and wetter compared to Earth, and ideally located around stars with longer lifespans than our own. So yeah, not only is Earth inferior, so too is our Sun, according to the new research.George Dvorsky, “These 24 Planets Might Be Better Places to Live Than Earth, Astrobiologists Say” at Gizmodo
The paper is open access.
It all reminds yer house News hack of all the Americans who have claimed they will move to Canada when they don’t like the results of some election or other.
Yes, sight unseen. Never been in Canada except for a stopover at an international airport or some gig somewhere. Don’t know the most basic stuff about how the country works (or is supposed to or maybe doesn’t). Fortunately, they rarely actually carry out their intention. The whining would soon become intolerable…
Not saying Canada’s inferior. Hardly. Just that whining is not a good substitute for thinking and research.
