Habitable Zone Gallery

Habitable Zone Gallery Research Project Operational

Overview:

The Habitable Zone Gallery (www.hzgallery.org) is a new service to the exoplanet community which provides Habitable Zone (HZ) information for each of the exoplanetary systems with known planetary orbital parameters.

The service includes a sortable table with information on the percentage of orbital phase spent within the HZ, planetary effective temperatures, and other basic planetary properties. In addition to the table, there are also plots of the period and eccentricity of the planets with respect to their time spent in the HZ, and a gallery of known systems with plots of the orbits and the location of the HZ with respect to those orbits.

IPAC's role:

The gallery was created by IPAC scientists Dawn Gelino and Stephen Kane as a service to the exoplanet community.
