Planetary Description

Kepler-186f is a likely to be rocky planet that orbits a red dwarf star known as Kepler 186. Located at the outer edge of the habitable zone of its host star, the planet is most likely to be very cold. The force of gravity of this planet is most likely to be very similar to Earth and it is also located over 490 light years away from us. The planet's temperature and composition of its atmosphere are unknown just like what it looks like up close.

How Kepler-186f compares to Earth:

Kepler 186f is the first discovery of a Earth sized planet known to orbit in the habitable zone of its host star(discovery made in 2014). Kepler 186f is only 10% bigger than Earth, although the mass is unknown but predicted to be 0.5x or up to 2x of Earth's mass. There are also four other planets that orbit in the Kepler 186 system which also orbit close to the host star.

How to get to Kepler 186f!

After years and years of preparation and research, we have found solutions to every problem with Kepler 186f and it is now completely capable of supporting human life. The launch will take place on March 2nd, 3050. The trip will take about 4,900 years since Kepler-186f is about 490 light years away.
