At 3.6 times the mass of earth, could it be habitable? Would we have to evolve stronger or smaller to cope with being heavier?

Surface gravity depends on mass and radius:

g = GM/r²

So if the planet is larger, the gravity could be similar.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

In 50 years, you'll have one implanted in your brain.
Are you ready for that ?
