How long until someone makes an addon for this new exoplanet?


Until we know the exact details of the planet: size, mass and it's orbit.

Not necessary, there's plenty of information available right now to make it for SE.

Yeah, i saw it now today.

It's plenty of information here: http://kepler.nasa.gov/Mission/discoveries/
On that, we can add all the 5 planets in the Kepler-186 system. All of them are Earth-sized. Tha largest one is only 40% larger than Earth, the smallest one is exactly the same size as Earth, only 7% larger.

He's telling you to search for a thread to make your post in, not to search specifically for Kepler 186 f. Also, it's probably not a great idea to backtalk a moderator when he reminds you of the forum rules.


I know, and I'm sorry.

I wonder how they will look like in SE... Maybe a rocky planet with many layers of clouds like giants ?




Want some music of mine ? Please go here !

SpaceEngine can't model thick atmosphere. The better solution is model them as small gas giant, with atmosphere model starting at level of say 10,000 bar, and maximum pressure what any ship can sustain is 1000 bar. So no one can land on its opaque surface (atmosphere code required opaque surface).

Most precise determination of an exoplanet's size thus far: Kepler-93b is ~1.48 Earth radii, with an uncertainty of only +/- 120 kilometers. ApJ article

From the video:
"Kepler 421b, as scientists have dubbed the planet, orbits just One Hundred and Ten Miles from its star..."

Okay, I know Average American Joe understands miles and probably not AU, but can they really not just say "20% farther from its star than the Earth is from the Sun?" No, let's use miles and then get it wrong by a factor of a million. tongue
