One of the human desires has always been to find other planets for life, because he knows that the earth will not last forever. So scientists and astronomers are looking for planets that look like Earth and can most likely live there. In the video in this article, we will introduce 10 planets that are more similar to Earth.

Before we get to the names and distances of these planets, we need to know a few assumptions. Scientists generally use the “ESI” index to determine whether a planet resembles Earth. The criteria for this index include the radius of rotation, density, atmosphere, mass and volume of the planet. Based on the proximity of these criteria to Earth, it can provide a percentage that shows the similarity of the discovered planet to Earth.
Another case is the name of these planets. Astronomers have named all the planets outside the solar system “exoplanets”. According to data from the Gaia and Kepler telescopes, there are more than 4,000 exoplanets in the Milky Way galaxy, which are estimated to have even better conditions for human life than on Earth. Of course, for a planet to be habitable, there must be another criterion.
That criterion is called “Goldilocks”. If a planet is at this distance from its own sun, it means that the temperature on that planet is tolerable and not hot enough for the human body to melt, nor cold enough for everything to freeze. Given these criteria, we can now go to 10 planets that are very similar to Earth, and most likely, if a human foot opens there, it can build life.
