Scientists Have Now Discovered A Habitable Planet Where One Can Live Up To Age 3,158

Scientists have discovered a potentially habitable planet 100 light years away from Earth where the average life expectancy would be 3,158 years.

Two planets were discovered orbiting the star TOI-4306 by an international team of scientists, led by astrophysicist Laetitia Delrez.

TOI-4306 is about half as hot as our sun and 6.5 times smaller. The first planet is called LP 890-9b or TOI-4306b. It is about 30 percent bigger than the Earth and completes an orbit around its star in just 2.7 days.

The current average life expectancy on Earth is 73.5 years. This would mean the average life expectancy on TOI-4306b, which has a much shorter year due to its very short orbit, would be 9,943.

That’s a hell of a lot of candles on your birthday cake.

This planet was initially identified by NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS). TESS is a space mission that is dedicated to the search of exoplanets in nearby orbiting stars. Exoplanets are worlds outside of our solar system.

This planet is about 40 percent larger than the Earth and has an orbital period of about 8.5 days. So if you happened to live on this planet, you could celebrate up to 3,158 birthdays.
