Is There A More Habitable Planet Than The Earth?


These days, we can hear about people trying to migrate into an another planet in the Solar System. But then, that doesn’t make the planet better than Earth to live in.

Making it a bigger scale, there are planets in the galaxy that could be much more habitable than Earth.

In this article, I am going to introduce you the planets that maybe better for living, maybe where you want to live in the future.

Kepler-1126 b

This planet, discovered in 2016 is a planet 1.73 times bigger than the Earth. It locates about 2073 lights years away from the Earth, and belongs to a system that is 7.5 billion years old.

This planet has the distance of about 0.4126 AU (Astronomical Unit) from its star, which makes it about 108.6 days to complete one orbit around its Sun, which is about 2.5 times closer than from the Earth to the Sun.

Maybe that makes you feel like “Isn’t that too hot for us to live?” Actually, this planet’s star is much more cooler than the Sun, which makes it balanced to make this planet habitable than Earth.


Kepler-69c, which has similar names with the Kepler-1126 b, is about 2,700 light years far away from the Earth.

This planet is about 70 percent larger the size of Earth, “and is the smallest yet found to orbit in the habitable zone of a sun-like star (NASA Content Administrator)”.

Although people aren’t sure about the structure of this planet, people know that this planet takes about 242 days to orbit around its star.
