The of the year is 267 days, while the length of day is unknown.

There are no rings and moons circling this planet.

By the time we reach this planet I would be 1,215

Gravity and The Distance

The surface gravity of this planet is 13.7298 newtons of force.

It would take us 12,000 years for us to get there going at 10% of the speed of light.

The Problems and Solutions

Problems

  • It is the farthest planet in its solar system, so it would be the coldest.
  • The sun is a red dwarf so it only emits one fifth of the energy ours does.
  • Waterworld-if the whole planet is covered in water it would be difficult to survive on.
  • Greenhouse gases might make it hard to breath
Solutions

  • If there were enough greenhouse gases on the planet it would warm it.
  • We would need to use other sources of energy besides solar to power things.
  • Though it may not be practical if the greenhouse gases were bad enough you might want to keep your mask on.
