Can humans live on other planets?

Answer

As of 2014, there are no other known planets capable of sustaining life. Due to factors such as lack of gravity, no water and inhospitable atmospheres, life on other planets is not possible at this time.

Due to the way humans have destroyed the many natural resources on Earth, scientists and astronomers are continuously searching for another planet capable of sustaining human life. Some candidates for human colonization include the moon and Mars.

NASA's Kepler satellite continuously searches for hospitable Earth-like planets. A telescope built in space called the Terrestrial Planet Finder also searches for planets that can host humans. Once a planet has been found, getting there poses the next problem. It is safe to assume that life on a distant planet is, at the very least, several years away.
