Nowadays, our earth has been fast-changing and have a various problem that effect to the ecosystem which has to adaptation but if a human can’t adapt to live in the earth, we may have to settle in an exoplanet. So how do we know that it can settle? At present, we have a lot of technology in the survey of various exoplanets but it has many budgets. Would it be better if we can save the budget on this part? So we invent a satellite the size of a can or we call it “CANSAT” to survey and keep various data which can bring to analyze the possibility to live on that planet. We keep various data from CANSAT that are volume of nitrogen, oxygen and carbon, brightness, temperature, pressure, humidity, the volume of ozone, and intensity of UV ray. We designed it to be able to send data to a ground station to prevent data loss if we can’t keep CANSAT. We simulate the situation from earth because we can’t go to the exoplanet by releasing CANSAT from the sky by drone and rocket that we built. The height of the drone is about 300 meters and the height of the rocket is about 550. Various data bring to analyze and compare with height. The result from the analysis is certain that we can settle because we live on earth and we analyze that data about the origin of life (Abiogenesis) because if have a creature, we may develop to settle on that exoplanet.
