Greg Laughlin, an astrophysicist who recently came up with an equation for estimating the value of planets. What you need to do, you feed Laughlin’s equation some key parameters like a planet’s mass, its estimated temperature, and the age, type, and apparent brightness of its star. The result is a  number that should, Laughlin says, equate to cold, hard cash.

Planet, Gliese 581 c was thought to be the most Earth like world known beyond our solar system. The equation said it was worth a measly $160. Our neighbour planet, Mars fared better, priced at $14,000. And Our planet’s value emerged as nearly 5 quadrillion dollars.


So Check your bank balance. Call Mr. Laughlin, he can give you an estimate
