There's good news for everyone who thinks the coronavirus pandemic and the recent uptick of hurricanes, wildfires and global warming indicate the end of the world is near: Scientists have discovered 24 planets that have more livable climates than Earth does.

In a study published in Tuesday's issue of "Astrobiology," researchers say they believe the two dozen "superhabitable" planets are "larger, slightly warmer and possibly wetter" than our home planet.

They also orbit stars that have longer lifespans than the Sun, which means they'll support life longer than Earth will, according to the study.

But don't start packing just yet; the closest of the 24 planets is more than 100 light years from Earth. Just one light year equals 6 trillion miles.
