All About Kepler-186f

What it would be like to live on Kepler-186f.

Even though living on another planet would be a very interesting experience, there are some downsides to living on Kepler-186f. Scientist have done a lot of research but they still aren't positive if living things can survive on this planet. The biggest problem is that 186f is on the coolest edge of the habitable zone. This means the water on the planet can freeze and if the water freezes there won't be electricity. One way to fix this is to get energy from the water that isn't frozen to make heat and melt the frozen water. Another problem is on Kepler-186f there's a lot of helium and hydrogen, this easy fix can be solved by building one big dome over everything to keep it out. As you can see there are some problems with living on this planet but Earth isn't an option anymore.

Just like the children's book "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" the planet above in the Habitable Zone is in the perfect spot for people to live.
