Hey JD would you consider making an add-on for the first superhabitable exoplanet we have found? I don't see it anywhere in SE, nor its parent star for that matter. Details:https://www.universetoday.com/148291/th ... han-earth/
So, are there any planets that meet the conditions!? It’s a solid…maybe. We can’t measure all these criteria from the distances we are observing with current technologies. We can’t, for example, yet determine if an exoplanet features active plate tectonics or hosts a moon. But we can measure the mass of an exoplanet, whether it orbits within the habitable zone, estimate its age, and classify the parent star. Scanning the 4000+ Kepler planets for superhabitable criteria, the authors find 24 terrestrial candidates that meet at least some of the conditions. 9 orbit K stars, 16 are between 5-18 billion years old, and 5 are within a 10 degree range of optimal temperature. Of the 24, ONE meets all the observable criteria, KOI 5715.01
, which orbits a K class orange dwarf star roughly 3000 light years from Earth.
