Does anyone know much about this? I was wondering what something like this would mean for space engine. I know that space engine uses known star maps and astronomical data, but I couldn't find the Kepler 186 system in space engine.

Do things like this get added to the known database? I did a google search of Kepler systems, and Kepler-22 b came up as the first planet discovered within a habitable zone, in 2011. Sure enough, that one is in space engine.

Exoplanet catalog in SE did not updated since 2013. So no, Kepler-186 is not in SE.

Nice rivers! How did you generate these textures?

a question: why kepler-22 b is a gas giant?




the universe is made to be explored, but no one will ever visit it all

Where is it portrayed as a gas giant? SE presents Kepler-22 b as an ice giant, which is consistent with its observed parameters.

It should be noted that although the radius of this planet is well constrained at 2.4 RE, the mass is only very weakly constrained (<~50 earth masses at 95% confidence). There are a lot of potential compositions that fit this range.

look at this gas giant! has an orbital period of 129 days as kepler 186 f in a red dwarf that of M2 and kepler 186 is an M1 star!, its rotation period is 10 h !, kepler 186 f may not be tidal locked!

i use a old bit of code that is on my list of software to update and fix ( i am NOT the original creator)
it is called "fracplanet"

i was a bit bored and half watching primetime TV 186f was in the news
so for a few hours i played around

when i first posted it on a different forum it was under the title of
"for grins and giggles"

a COLD O2( oxygen) poor, Fe rich ( hence green water) oceans . with a thinnish atmosphere ( mix of earth & mars)

Kepler-186 f is too Young for complex life on surface, it has 2.5 GY
May that world had coplex life... there not live in surface buf under water!

I don't think it's impossible for complex life to evolve in 2.5 billion years. On Earth it happened to take ~3.3 billion years, but that's not that much longer, and there's no reason why certain steps couldn't be taken more quickly (or more slowly) on an alien world.

Agreed. While we understand the evolution of life on Earth pretty well, we don't yet understand enough about the dynamics to predict how it would unfold under different conditions. What we do know suggests that complex and stochastic processes are important. So it is probably not safe to assume that the ~3GY timescale for the development of complex life seen on Earth is typical of all terrestrial planets. It might be a huge outlier. smile

Yes, basically it is said that in 2 and a half billion years for life to go from sea to the mainland, but because there's intelligent life ... is a bit complicated, is not it?
UNLESS ... a hypothetical alien civilization backed by millions (if not billions) of years of history can colonize a young planet where life undeveloped or is born recently.

Well, we have even less of an idea of how likely intelligent life is to evolve than we have for complex life. It's quite possible that intelligent life is extremely unlikely in the first place. However, I don't see why it would be much less likely in 2.5 billion years than in 4 billion years. On Earth it only took 550 million years to go from complex life to intelligent life. The problem with making estimates of the speed and direction of evolution on other worlds is that we only have Earth as an example, and we have no idea whether the development of life on Earth was average or a massive outlier.
