Would you move to another planet if it could support life?


HENDERSON, Ky. (WEHT) – Could we survive on another planet?

Astronomers say it could be possible on a planet called K2-18-b.

It’s known as super-earth and it’s 8 times the size of our planet.

They found water vapor and temperatures that could support life.

Would you live on another planet if you could?

Eyewitness News’ Kelly Austin asked some people in Henderson if they would live on another planet.

But don’t get too excited about a planetary re-location, it’s 110 light-years away.

110 light-years equal to 660 trillion miles.

And if you travel at the same rate as the astronauts do in space, you should be there in a little over 3 million years.
