Diagram Compares Planets Of Inner Solar System To Kepler-62, Five-Planet System About 1 200 Light-years From Earth In Constellation Lyra. Five planets of Kepler-62 orbiting star classified as K2 dwarf, measuring just two thirds size of Sun and only one fifth as bright. At seven billion years old, star is somewhat older than Sun. Much like our solar System, Kepler-62 is home to Habitable Zone worlds, Kepler-62f and Kepler-62e. Kepler-62f orbits every 267 days and is only 40 percent larger than Earth, making it smallest exoplanet known in Habitable Zone of another star. Other Habitable Zone Planet, Kepler-62e, Orbits Every 122 Days And Is Roughly 60 Percent Larger Than Earth. Size Of Kepler-62f Is Know, But Its Mass And Composition Are Not. However, based on previous exoplanet discoveries of similar size that are rocky, scientists are to determine its mass by association. Two Habitable Zone worlds orbiting Kepler-62 have three interior companions, two larger than size of Earth and one about size of Mars. Kepler-62b, Kepler-62c and Kepler-62d, orbit every Five, 12, and 18 days, respectively, making very hot and inhospitable for life as we know it. Artistic Concepts Of Kepler-62 Planets Are Result Of Scientists And Artists Collaborating To Help Imagine Appearance Of These Distant Worlds. Kepler Space Telescope, Which Simultaneously And Continuously Measures Brightness Of More Than 150 000 Stars, Is NASA's First Mission Capable Of Detecting Earth-size Planets Around Stars Like Our Sun. NASA's Ames Center in Moffett Field, Calif., Manage Kepler's ground System development, Mission operations and Science data analysis. JPL manages Kepler Mission's development.

Nomenclature and history

Diagram Compares Planets Of Inner Solar System To Kepler-62, Five-planet System About 1 200 Light-years From Earth In Constellation Lyra. Five planets of Kepler-62 orbiting star classified as K2 dwarf, measuring just two thirds size of sun and only one fifth as bright. At seven billion years old, star is somewhat older than sun. Much like our system, Kepler-62 is home to two habitable zone worlds, Kepler-62f and Kepler-62e. Kepler-62f orbits every 267 days and is only 40 percent larger than Earth, making it smallest Exoplanet known in habitable zone of another star. Other habitable zone planet, Kepler-62e, orbits every 122 days and roughly 60 percent larger than Earth. Size Of Kepler-62f Is Know, But Its Mass And Composition Are Not. However, based on previous Exoplanet discoveries of similar size that are rocky, scientists are able determine its mass by association. Two habitable zone worldss orbiting Kepler-62 have three interior companions, two larger than size of Earth and one about size of Mars. Kepler-62b, Kepler-62c and Kepler-62d, orbit every five, and 18 days, respectively, making them very hot and inhospitable for life as we know it. Artistic concepts of Kepler-62 planets are result of scientists and artists collaborating to help imagine appearance of these distant worlds.

Stellar characteristics

NASA's Kepler space telescope was launched in 2009 with goal of detecting planets size of Earth's in habitable zone of Sun-like stars and determining frequency of these planets. Using data from Kepler, et al. Report detection of five-planet system where all planets are smaller than twice size of Earth and where two outermost planets orbit in habitable zone of their star, defined as region where rocky planet can host liquid water on its solid surface. Star, Kepler-62, Is Smaller And Cooler Than Sun.
