I am a high school student. I'm doing a project where I need to find a planet in our galaxy that might be habitable. Then I need to create an organism that could live on that planet and justify everything about it Ex: Sight, whether or not it can see and why or why not / Touch / Smell / Respiration / Central Nervous System / Cell Count... My final outcome must have these and a lot more.
I just need to justify and explain where it lives on the planet I have chosen. I found a planet (Kepler-422b) which was described as being one of the most Earth-like planets, in terms of size and temperature, yet found. Since it is very Earth-like, it made my job a bit easier. But the planet orbits a red dwarf star that is cooler than our star, and this planet is -40 degrees Fahrenheit (80 degrees cooler than earth) so my organism will have to live in the ground of the planet and rely on the core for warmth. But I do not know how deep organisms can go into the Earth. Can someone please help me? I have done a lot of research and spent a lot of time trying to find this but extremophiles are the only organisms listed.
Thank you so much for helping me.
An extremophile is defined as a microorganism, especially an archaean, that lives in conditions of extreme temperature, acidity, alkalinity, or chemical concentration. Like the Tardigrade. Im sorry I did not make this clear initialy
