People voyaged about the planet aboard sleek, rocketlike airships, or flitted about Krypton's picturesque metropolises—such as Kandor, Kryptonopolis, and Argo City—in bubble-topped jet-taxis or by means of jetlike devices called solo-rocket tubes which, strapped to an individual's back, enabled him or her to fly through the air.

The Earth-like planet that could be covered in oceans and may support life is 20.5 light years away, and has the right temperature to allow liquid water on its surface.
Because all planets are relatively so small and the light they give off so faint compared to their sun, finding exoplanets is extremely difficult unless they are huge.
This new planet lies bang in the middle of the zone, with average surface temperatures estimated to be between zero and 40c (32-102f).
