Scientists say that life could survive longer on other planets in the solar system. Pots dam Institute of Climate Impact research in Germany say so. The team discovered these planets could host life for upto 11.9 billion years as compared to the usual 8.8 years in earth.

“ Super-Earths, which are up to 10 times the mass of Earth, stay hot for longer than planets like ours, meaning volcanism keeps the atmosphere topped up with carbon dioxide, says Bounama. This helps warm the planet and supports photosynthetic life.” Reports New Scientist. Amazing huh?

With all this upheaval about global warming, why cant we al cross over and watch this earth burst into flames as predicted.
