The list is based on estimates of habitability by the Habitable Exoplanets Catalog (HEC), and data from the NASA Exoplanet Archive. A planet’s ability to harbor life results from the complex interplay between its host star, its own orbit and rotation, and the make-up of its surface and interior. This is a list of potentially habitable exoplanets and possible exoplanets. This exoplanet is in its star's habitable zone (the distance where liquid water could exist on the planet's surface) and is the closest to Earth in size and temperature found yet in Kepler's data.
Type - PHL's classification of planets that includes host star spectral type (F, G, K, M), habitable zone location (hot, warm, cold) and size (miniterran, subterran, terran, superterran, jovian, neptunian) (e.g. This infographic explores some of the many factors that affect whether a planet can support life as we know it.

In addition to the search for life on Earth-like exoplanets, HabEx will enable a broad range of general astrophysics science enabled by 100 to 2500 nm spectral range and 3 x 3 arc-minute FOV. < Talk:Exoplanet (Redirected from Talk:Extrasolar planet/Archive 1) This is an archive of past discussions.

A habitable planet is one that can sustain life as we know it for billions of years.

In the NASA Exoplanet Archive this is based solely on the radiation equilibrium temperature being between 180 Kelvin and 310 Kelvin. This giant planet, which is about half the mass of Jupiter and orbits its star every four days, was the first confirmed exoplanet around a sun-like star, a discovery that launched a whole new field of exploration.

Habitable Exoplanet Imaging Mission (HabEx) is a concept for a mission to directly image and characterize planetary systems around Sun-like stars. a NASA MARSHALL SPACE … NASA Exoplanet Archive.1 Of the KOI objects, the NASA archive lists 297 that are considered to be in the habitable zone.
