Thousands of light years from Earth, there could be another planet with life. And Keeler 69c, a super-Earth beyond the solar system, is considered by many to be such a possible location.
Located 2,383 light years from Earth, Cygnus constellation, Kepler 69c is a potential super-Earth. At least that’s what astronomers say.
Kepler 69c is an exoplanet about 1.7 times larger than our planet, it orbits the Sun-like star Keeller-69. However, at the moment it is unclear whether the planet is in the habitable zone.
Super-Earths are perhaps the most common form of planet in our galaxy.
Planet Earth is probably the most common planet shape in our galaxy. Since 2009, the Kepler space telescope has discovered around 4,000 exoplanets. 30% of them are super-Earths. And a few percent of these super-Earths orbit around the habitable zone of their host star.
If it is too close to its host star, Kepler 69c will be too hot for liquid water to exist on the surface. If he was too far from his Sun, it would only be a cold world. What we do know is that Kepler 69c orbits its star about 40% closer than Earth orbits the Sun. And that can mean is Kepler 69c is not really a super-Earthinstead it could be super star kim.
This planet is too far from us, So far, it’s all just speculation. But if you’re planning on visiting this planet, put that thought aside because even if you can travel at 1% of the speed of light, you won’t get there anytime soon. At this speed, you can circle the Earth in just over 13 seconds. But to get to Kepler 69c, it would take about 238,000 years.
It is possible that some of these super-Earths are not composed of rocks like Earth.
The habitable zone is where the surface of the planet has the right temperature for liquid water, neither too cold nor too hot. It is however possible that some of these super-Earths are not composed of rocks like the Earth. They can consist mostly of hydrogen and helium gas like Jupiter and Saturn, which makes them unfit for life.
From the distance between the planet and its star, we know that Kepler 69c receives the same amount of sunlight as Venus. And although it is larger than Earth, its density is relatively low. All of this means that instead of metal, the rocky planet is made up of silicate and carbonate minerals.
With all these minerals in the crust, Kepler 69c may have a very thick atmosphere. This atmosphere would consist mainly of carbon dioxide. If Kepler 69c were like Venus, it would be quite a hot planet – Kepler 69c’s atmosphere would fall into an endless cycle of getting thicker and hotter.
The temperature on the surface of this planet can reach 475 degrees Celsius.. And the atmospheric pressure would be more than 90 times that of Earth – it would be like being 900 meters deep in the ocean.
Kepler 69c, about 1.7 times larger than Earth.
Keρler 69c, about 1.7 times larger than Earth. This planet orbits a star similar to our Sun. Astronomers are unsure of Kepler 69c’s composition, but say the planet’s orbit is about 242 days around a Sun-like star and its conditions are similar to those of the nearby planet. Our neighbor is Venus.
With such conditions, you probably won’t find anything like the ocean here. As on Venus, the high temperatures will boil all the water. Whatever life you are likely to encounter on this planet must be able to survive the extreme conditions described above. Or else it would have to exist elsewhere than the surface.
However, if there is indeed life on Keeler 69c, it will likely exist on the cloud. At about 50 km altitude, the temperature will be much cooler. They will range from about 30 to 70 degrees Ϲ. And with this location, it’s possible that the gravitational pull here is just over 70% of that found on Earth.
This lower gravity could allow life forms to thrive in the sky. As a result, life can only float freely in the atmosphere. It would be another way for the planet to have more in common with Venus than with Earth. Probes around Sao Kim have detected traces of a gas that could be a potential sign of life – phosphine.
Scientists still don’t know if life exists on Kepler 69c.
So far, scientists don’t know if life exists on Keeler 69c, the ASA said. However, their discoveries allow humans to go further in their search for a realistic Earth-like world.
If discovered phosphine in the atmosphere of Kepler 69c, then it could be the result of bacteria not needing oxygen to survive. The gas has an odor similar to rotten fish. On Earth, phosphine-producing bacteria typically live in swamps or wetlands. But on Venus or Kepler 69c, this bacterium can survive in its own thick, oxygen-poor atmosphere.
