The First Earth Sized Planet!


Planetary Description

Kepler-186f is the first Earth-size planet found it the habitable zone of its star. It orbits a red dwarf star. Kepler-186f is rocky like the Earth and has a suitable atmosphere. Kepler-186f planetary system lies in the direction of the constellation Cygnus, about 500 light-years away.

If your spaceship can travel at 0.1C, how long would it take to travel to your planet? How old would you be when you arrive?: It would take 5,000 years to get to my planet. I would be 5,014 when I arrive.

How to Get There!

The shuttle for Kepler-186f will be departing earth in approximately 10 months on December 21, 3062. The shuttle will only be able to accommodate 450,000 settlers (as well as its crew of 340). Be prepare to be frozen in carbonite since the trip to Kepler-186f ,which transverses 490 light-years at warp 1.6 (.1C the speed of light or 1.08x10^8 km/hr), will take approximately 4,800 years.
