Super Earth, or exoplanets with a mass greater than Earth and belonging to the rocky type, may in the future be ideal places for the flourishing of biological life. This exciting news comes to us from astronomers at the University of Zurich.
Recent research shows that there are star systems everywhere Milky Way Plenty of such facilities. It’s now too hot for co-dominant conditions for the evolution of life as we know it, but in the future, billions of years from now, the super-cold Earth could become a true Second Earth.
This means that only in the future, the abyss of the universe may be filled with hundreds of billions of planets on which civilizations will arise. Not only that, astronomers have estimated that some super-terrestrial planets may provide favorable conditions for life even through them 80 billion years. Water should be present at these locations during this period.
This is much longer than what our planet will provide. Within 6 billion years, there may be no trace of EarthWhen the sun begins to end its life and swell, it will swallow up our beautiful world. True, life on the super-Earth will operate in extreme conditions, but scientists believe that this will not prevent its formation.
– Here we claim that this should be taken into account habitable planets They could be very different from Earth and we should remain open to looking for such potentially habitable planets, Moll-Loss told Nature Astronomy. “Of course, it’s also important to be careful not to jump to conclusions when considering ‘exotic’ habitats where we know so little and so much can be left to speculation,” Loos added.
In addition, the team found that planets with a mass one to ten times the mass of Earth, with an atmosphere 100 to 1,000 times denser than Earth’s sky, could provide adequate living conditions. These, in particular, are objects slightly farther from the Sun than Mars. They can hold on to this Hydrogen and helium envelope. At this potentially safe distance, these atmospheres can act as greenhouse gases by absorbing infrared radiation, providing a source of heat that can lead to living in liquid water oceans.
Astronomers hope it will be launched recently James Webb Space Telescope Or the prospective Roman space telescope Nancy Grace will enable comprehensive detection of the super-cold Earth, understand the composition of its atmosphere and search for traces of life in it.
