Question:
Will people be able to live on any planet?



Replies:
You can answer this question yourselves. What are the conditions humans need to live? What temperature, chemicals, air content? What are the conditions on known planets? You can look up surface temperatures and the nature of the gases on other planets is known. Without supplying our own conditions it does not look good for our solar system.
