April 23, 2013. ... about one-and-a-half-times the Earth's diameter.  In comparison, the Sun is about 4.6 billion years old and has a temperature of 5778 K., The star is somewhat poor in metals, with a metallicity ([Fe/H]) of about –0.37, or about 42% of the amount of iron and other heavier metals found in the Sun, which is similar to that of Kepler 442.  Based on composition models, the real masses of the planets are probably likely to be 2.1, 0.1, 5.5, 4.8, and 2.8 M⊕, respectively, taking into the uncertainty in composition and upper mass limits. Kepler-62f jest także najprawdopodobniej planetą skalistą. The nearest-to-Earth-size planet in a habitable zone previously known was Kepler-62f with 1.4 Earth radii. From this data we can tell how long it takes for the planet to orbit its star. It is about 2/3 the size of our Sun, is cooler, older, and only about 1/5 as bright. The Kepler spacecraft has discovered about a thousand planets by catching them when they pass directly in front of their star. However it orbits at the inner edge of the habitable zone in 122 days. It is orbiting within the habitable zone of the star Kepler-62, the outermost of five such planets discovered around the star by NASA's Kepler spacecraft. Kepler-62f is likely to have a rocky composition. However, based on previous exoplanet discoveries of similar size that are rocky, scientists are able to determine its mass by association. Topic. The outermost planets, Kepler-62e and -62f, are super-Earth-size (1.25 R ⊕ < planet radius ≤ 2.0 R ⊕) planets in the habitable zone of their host star, respectively receiving 1.2 ± 0.2 times and 0.41 ± 0.05 times the solar flux at Earth’s orbit. Following the acceptance of the discovery paper, the Kepler team provided an additional moniker for the system of "Kepler-62". The Math: What Life On Kepler-62e Would Be Like. Physical Characteristics . 1,200 light-years from Earth in the constellation Lyra. The designation of b is given to the first planet orbiting a given star, followed by the other lowercase letters of the alphabet. Previous research suggests that a planet the size of Kepler-186f is likely to be rocky. The five planets of Kepler-62 orbit a star classified as a K2 dwarf, measuring just two thirds the size of the sun and only one fifth as bright. Kepler-62f znajduje się około 1200 lat świetlnych (370 pc) od Ziemi w gwiazdozbiorze Lutni. Kepler-62f is NASA's Kepler mission's smallest habitable zone planet, but its star, located about 1,200 light-years from Earth in the constellation Lyra, is smaller, cooler, and older than the Sun. The size of Kepler-186f is known to be less than ten percent larger than Earth, but its mass, composition and density are not known. Prior to Kepler observation, Kepler-62 had the 2MASS catalogue number 2MASS J18525105+4520595. Kepler-186f - Wikipedia In terms of stellar flux, radius, and equilibrium temperature, Kepler-1229b is similar (or an analog in some terms) to the potentially habitable exoplanet Kepler-62f. Krąży na orbicie wokół gwiazdy Kepler-62 i jest najdalszą z pięciu znanych planet tego systemu.  The outermost, Kepler-62f, is likely a rocky planet.. Kepler-62f (również znana jako KOI-701.04) – planeta pozasłoneczna zaliczana do typu superziem, o promieniu 1,4 razy większym od promienia Ziemi. The five planets of Kepler-62 orbit a star classified as a K2 dwarf, measuring just two thirds the size of the sun and only one fifth as bright. Two such planets, Kepler-62e and Kepler-62f, orbit the same star. Kepler-62f znajduje się około 1200 lat świetlnych (370 pc) od Ziemi w gwiazdozbiorze Lutni. Candidate planets that are associated with stars studied by the Kepler Mission are assigned the designations ".01", ".02", ".03", ".04", ".05" etc. ... Third innermost and the largest exoplanet discovered orbiting the star Kepler-62, with a size roughly twice the diameter of Earth. , Coordinates: 18h 52m 51.06s, +45° 20′ 59.5″, "Kepler-62: A Five-Planet System with Planets of 1.4 and 1.6 Earth Radii in the Habitable Zone", "NASA's Kepler Discovers Its Smallest 'Habitable Zone' Planets to Date", "Water worlds surface: Planets covered by global ocean with no land in sight", NASA Kepler Discovers New Potentially Habitable Exoplanets, "A prediction of an additional planet of the extrasolar planetary system Kepler-62 based on the planetary distances' long-range order", Kepler – Discovery of New Planetary Systems (2013), Kepler – Tally of Planets/interactive (2013). Its two outermost worlds go by the names Kepler-62e and Kepler-62f. By Kyle Hill. Scientists say these new worlds are the right size and distance from their parent star, so that you might expect to find liquid water on their surface. Kepler-62e, has a size 60 percent larger than the Earth, and it also lies in the habitable zone of its star. Their radii, 1.61 and 1.41 Earth radii respectively, put them in a radius range where they may be solid terrestrial planets.  To keep this highly sensitive to perturbations planetary system stable, no additional giant planets can be located within 30 AU from the parent stars.  The name Kepler-62 derives directly from the fact that the star is the catalogued 62nd star discovered by Kepler to have confirmed planets. after the star's name, in the order of discovery. Planet Kepler 62f has a diameter only 1.4 times larger than Earth. It is about 2/3 the size of our Sun, is cooler, older, and only about 1/5 as bright. However, based on previous exoplanet discoveries of similar size that are rocky, scientists are … List of interstellar and circumstellar molecules, Exoplanetary Circumstellar Environments and Disk Explorer, Communication with extraterrestrial intelligence, Gauss's Pythagorean right triangle proposal, Potential cultural impact of extraterrestrial contact, https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Kepler-62&oldid=993421397, Planetary systems with five confirmed planets, Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License, This page was last edited on 10 December 2020, at 15:02. The size of Kepler-62f is known, but its mass and composition are not. Kepler-62f is only 40 percent larger than Earth, making it the exoplanet closest to the size of our planet known in the habitable zone of another star. In the Kepler Input Catalog it has the designation of KIC 9002278, and when it was found to have transiting planet candidates it was given the Kepler object of interest number of KOI-701. Kepler-62f, which is also known by its Kepler Object of Interest designation KOI-701.04, is a super-Earth exoplanet. The planet is 1.4 times the size of the Earth and has an orbital period of 267 days. At 1.4 times the size of Earth, it has a diameter of roughly 17,838.8 kilometers (11,130 miles). Kepler-62f orbits its host star every 267 days and is roughly 40 percent larger than Earth in size. The masses of the planets could not be directly determined using either the radial velocity or the transit timing method; this failure leads to weak upper limits for the planets' masses. The outermost planet from the star, Kepler-62f, has a diameter that is 41% larger than Earth’s and takes 267 days to circle its star.
