If you also have moments when you would like to run away as far as you can from Earth, then you’re not alone. Even though our planet is fully habitable for most of us, there are still a lot of scourges that cannot be overlooked: diseases, wars, poverty, corruption, natural disasters, and so on.
Astronomers from the University of Canterbury (UC) have recently found a so-called “one in a million” Super-Earth exoplanet located near the center of the galaxy. While the scientists believe that the cosmic object exists in the Goldilocks Zone of its solar system, moving to this planet in the far future became an option for many of us. But is it possible? Long story short: no!
The distance is too big
Unless humanity finds a way to surpass the speed of light (which is impossible according to Einstein), there’s no chance that we can even arrive at that exoplanet during a human lifetime, not to mentionon moving there for good. The only chance we have to get there is to find a wormhole built by some other entity right next to us, as we’ve seen in the ‘Interstellar’ movie. A wormhole is a shortcut in spacetime, which means that it would help us to travel unimaginably big distances much faster. But to ever build such a thing, humanity needs an enormous amount of energy that we could never find on Earth. But anyway, if some of you have discovered a secret formula for inventing a wormhole, please don’t hesitate to tell us in the comments!
Time travel would also be an option, theoretically speaking. We could travel far further into the future when humanity would be evolving so much that it could play around with wormholes like they’re nothing. But yet again, nobody can invent a time machine, and Santa Claus delivers only toys.
No liquid water
There’s no liquid water present on the newfound exoplanet, as Michael Abrow, co-author of the study regarding the study for finding the Super-Earth, declared. And no liquid water means no life as we know it. And it means that we couldn’t survive on the planet without it being capable of providing us any water.
The discovery of the new Super-Earth has been published in The Astronomical Journal,
