Study: Earth suitable for life for at least another 1.75 billion years
Live Science: A new study conducted by scientists in the UK concludes that Earth should be suited for life for at least another 1.75 billion years.
A nuclear holocaust or a rogue asteroid are among the potential disasters that could prevent Earth being habitable for that long.If one of those scenarios doesn’t occur, between 1.75 billion and 3.25 billion years from now, Earth will travel out of the habitable zone of the solar system and move too close to the sun, causing Earth’s oceans to evaporate.
