My Hopes Dashed

Dang! It sounded so perfect.

Fresh water, a clean atmosphere, an incredible view. And the best part? A nice little house on this distant planet would be a whopping110 light years away from Donald Trump and Boris Johnson.

Humans would not fare well on the planet. If it has a hard surface, it would be impossible to stand. With gravity eight times stronger than on Earth, the average human would weigh half a tonne. Added to that are intense UV rays that would drive cancer-causing mutations.
