Imagine, hundreds of years from now, living on a planet other than earth, well thanks to nasa, that is a very real possibility. The search for a habitable planets is still being done by The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The best type of planet to support life would  be a terrestrial planet, because Jovian planets are made mostly of gas with a solid core. The atmospheres are made of hydrogen and helium. As far as we know, these elements cannot sustain life. Also, Jovian planets are farther away from the sun, so it would be out of the range that would be safe for planets to inhabit life. The location that is best (or the best habitable zone) for a life supporting planet would likely have to be in a warm area but not too close to the sun. It would have to cool enough so that water doesn’t evaporate, and warm enough so that the water doesn’t freeze over immediately. An ideal composition for a planet’s atmosphere would involve oxygen, ozone, carbon dioxide, methane and water vapor. These are known as simple gasses, and need to be present to create an atmosphere that can sustain life. There are ways of observing these gases, for example, we can utilize a tool called “spectroscopy” where we analyze the white light radiating from foreign planets (exoplanets). Through looking at the white light (split up by spectrum) we can analyse the different colors which represent different elements found on that planet. c Cc m  m  m m m m m mm mm ccccccccccccccccccc The back now oh wait after I do this c c c cc cc hfghbh h h h h h h h h h h h h g g  h  u u ughgfyfgfgh jbb h h h h h h h h h hvjgfgvjhfgvugfugfufugfutu
