WASP-121b, 880 light-years away, is considered a hot planet like Jupiter. It has a larger mass and radius than Jupiter, making it “swollen”. If WASP-121b were closer to the star of its host, it would be dissolved by the gravity of the star.
NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope has identified 219 more candidate planets, 10 of which are close to Earth and the habitable zone of their stars.
This artist’s idea shows the OGLE-2016-BLG-1195Lb, a planet in orbit around an incredibly dim star 13,000 light-years away. It is an “iceball” planet with minus temperatures of -400 degrees Fahrenheit.
The LHS 1140b is located in the habitable zone of liquid water around the host star, a small, faint red star called LHS 1140. The planet weighs about 6.6 times the mass of Earth and appears to pass in front of the LHS 1140. It is depicted in a blue color that the planet may have retained.
Conceptual image of an artist for the surface of the exoplanet TRAPPIST-1f. Of the seven exoplanets discovered in orbit around the super-cold dwarf star TRAPPIST-1, this may be the most suitable for life. It is similar in size to Earth, is slightly cooler than Earth’s temperature, and is located in the star’s habitable zone, which means that liquid water (and even oceans) could be on the surface. The proximity of the star gives the sky a shade of salmon, and the other planets are so close that they appear in the sky, like our moon.
The artist’s arrest for the binary system with three giant planets was discovered, where one star hosts two planets and the other hosts the third. The system represents the smallest binary divider in which both stars host planets that have never been observed.

Οι αστρονόμοι ανακάλυψαν δύο πλανήτες λιγότερο από τρεις φορές το μέγεθος της Γης σε τροχιά γύρω από τον ήλιο σαν αστέρια σε ένα γεμάτο αστρικό σύμπλεγμα περίπου 3.000 έτη φωτός από τη Γη στον αστερισμό του Κύκνου.
Αυτή η αντίληψη του καλλιτέχνη δείχνει έναν υποθετικό πλανήτη με δύο φεγγάρια σε τροχιά στην κατοικήσιμη ζώνη ενός κόκκινου νάνου. Η πλειονότητα των πιο κοντινών αστρικών γειτόνων του ήλιου είναι κόκκινοι νάνοι.
Ο Kepler-186f ήταν ο πρώτος επικυρωμένος πλανήτης μεγέθους Γης που βρέθηκε σε τροχιά σε ένα μακρινό αστέρι στην κατοικήσιμη ζώνη. Αυτή η ζώνη είναι μια απόσταση από ένα αστέρι όπου το υγρό νερό μπορεί να συγκεντρωθεί στην επιφάνεια του πλανήτη.
Το Kepler-69c είναι ένας πλανήτης μεγέθους υπερ-Γης παρόμοιος με τον Αφροδίτη. Ο πλανήτης βρίσκεται στην κατοικήσιμη ζώνη ενός αστεριού όπως ο ήλιος μας, περίπου 2.700 έτη φωτός από τη Γη στον αστερισμό του Κύκνου.
Το σύστημα Kepler-444 δημιουργήθηκε όταν ο Γαλαξίας ήταν μόλις 2 δισεκατομμύρια χρόνια. Το σφιχτά συσκευασμένο σύστημα φιλοξενεί πέντε πλανήτες σε μέγεθος, το μικρότερο είναι συγκρίσιμο με το μέγεθος του υδραργύρου και το μεγαλύτερο με την Αφροδίτη, σε τροχιά γύρω από τον ήλιο σε λιγότερο από 10 ημέρες.
Αυτή η καλλιτεχνική ιδέα συγκρίνει τη Γη, αριστερά, με το Kepler-452b, το οποίο είναι περίπου 60% μεγαλύτερο. Και οι δύο πλανήτες περιστρέφονται γύρω από ένα αστέρι τύπου G2 της ίδιας θερμοκρασίας. Ωστόσο, το αστέρι που φιλοξενεί το Kepler-452b είναι 6 δισεκατομμύρια χρόνια – 1,5 δισεκατομμύριο χρόνια μεγαλύτερο από τον ήλιο μας.
