Teachers in school have taught us that Earth is the only habitable planet in the universe, but what if there’s more? Based on a new study, Earth may not be the best place for life when you try to compare it with the other superhabitable planets. And while scientists look for other habitable planets outside our solar system, planets that are Earth-like may not be the most suitable answer.

Dirk Schulze-Makuch, professor and lead study author for astrobiology and planetary habitability at Washington State University, declared in a study written in the journal Astrobiology, that we are only looking for planets that are Earth-like that is why we tend to forget to look for a planet that is even better for sustaining life. In the latest study, Schulze-Makuch and his colleagues named 24 exoplanets and potential exoplanets (planets that are soon to be proven as exoplanets). The gaps of these planets from Earth are more than a hundred light-years away, which could be possible superhabitable planets with circumstances more fitting for survival than Earth.

Nonetheless, the authors said that they haven’t proven that these planets are habitable. Rather, they just mean that these planets could have elements that support life. Schulze-Makuch also added “A planet can be habitable or superhabitable but uninhabited. This has to do with the natural history of the planet. There could have been a calamity (like a nearby Supernova explosion).”
