The views are out of this world.
Scientists have narrowed in on two planets in a solar system similar to ours as being the most likely to be habitable.
The planets harbor water, have a heat source and a surface temperature on which you won’t fry or freeze.
The pair are located in Trappist-1, a seven-planet system 39 light years away from Earth that was discovered a year ago.
Since NASA announced the exciting celestial find, scientists have hypothesized that some of the seven planets — named by lower case letters, b through h — could be livable.
People living on a Trappist-1 planet are still not possible with current technology.
Scientists reached conclusions by determining the seven planets’ water and heat sources as well as by modeling planets’ orbits to calculate surface temperatures.
“That’s one of the main innovations of the paper,” Barr told the Guardian.
Planet d, the team estimates, has a temperature around 15C (59F). That’s slightly warmer than the melting point of ice. Planet e was colder. “The temperatures you would get in Antarctica,” Barr added, “but also reasonable.”
But don’t pack your bags quite yet. Scientists noted that Trappist-1 is too distant to be reached by humans with current technology.
