QUERY EXOPLANET DATA

SELECT A PAIR OF EXOPLANET/PARENT STARS PARAMETERS TO PLOT

SELECT THE DESIRED SPECTRAL TYPE OF EXOPLANET PARENT STARS YOU WISH TO QUERY (THE SUN IS TYPE 'G')





SELECT THE PAIR OF PARAMETERS YOU WISH TO PLOT ON THE GRAPH





DO YOU WISH USE A LOGARITHMIC SCALE FOR THE HORIZONTAL 'X' AXIS (FIRST FIELD SELECTED)
NO

YES

DO YOU WISH USE A LOGARITHMIC SCALE FOR THE VERTICAL 'Y' AXIS (SECOND FIELD SELECTED)
NO

YES


OPTIONAL ENTRY OF SEARCH STRING. ONLY PARENT STAR SYSTEM NAMES WITH A CASE INSENSITIVE MATCH WILL BE RETURNED, UNLESS THE WILDCARD CHARACTER "*" IS INCLUDED.



DO YOU WISH TO GUARANTEE THE INCLUSION OUR SOLAR (SUN) SYSTEM IN THE SEARCH STRING PLOT?
THE PLOT POINTS FOR THE SOLAR SYSTEM WILL BE WHITE TO DISTINGUISH THEM FROM THE SUBJECT PLOTS, EVEN THOUGH OUR SUN IS YELLOW TYPE 'G2.2'.
THE SOLAR (SUN) PLOT WILL INCLUDE PLUTO.
NO

YES



OPTIONAL ENTRY OF PARAMETERS TO ONLY RETURN EXOPLANETS WITHIN DEFINED LIMITS OF BOLOMETRIC HABITABILITY FACTOR
AND (EXOPLANET MASS AND/OR EXOPLANET RADIUS). USEFUL FOR FINDING EXOPLANETS OF EARTH LIKE MASS OR RADIUS IN THE HABITABLE ZONE.

AT LEAST FOUR PARAMETERS NEED TO BE SPECIFIED. NAMELY BOTH LIMITS FOR bolometric_habitability_factor AND BOTH LIMITS AT LEAST FOR radius_earth OR mass_earth.

NO PAIR OF LIMITS CAN HAVE EQUAL VALUES. EG, UPPER AND LOWER BOLOMETRIC HABITABILITY FACTOR LIMITS CANNOT BOTH BE EQUAL TO 1.5.
IF ANY PARAMETER IS INADVERTENTLY ENTERED AS A NEGATIVE NUMBER, IT WILL BE CONVERTED TO ITS (POSITIVE) ABSOLUTE VALUE. EG, -1.3 BECOMES 1.3.
IF AN UPPER LIMIT IS INADVERTENTLY ENTERED WITH A LESSER VALUE THAN ITS CORRESPONDING LOWER LIMIT, THEN THE VALUES WILL BE SWITCHED.
ANY NON-NUMERICAL ENTRY OR EMPTY FIELD WILL DEFAULT TO ZERO, AND IF TWO OR MORE PAIRS OF DATA ARE EQUAL, THIS OPTION WILL BE REJECTED COMPLETELY IN THE QUERY.


LOWER BOLOMETRIC HABITABILITY FACTOR LIMIT
UPPER BOLOMETRIC HABITABILITY FACTOR LIMIT
LOWER RADIUS LIMIT FOR EXOPLANET IN EARTH RADII
UPPER RADIUS LIMIT FOR EXOPLANET IN EARTH RADII
LOWER MASS LIMIT FOR EXOPLANET IN EARTH MASSES
UPPER MASS LIMIT FOR EXOPLANET IN EARTH MASSES


SELECT THE 'AND' OPTION IF YOU WISH TO QUERY EXOPLANET(S) SATISFYING BOTH THE MASS AND RADIUS CONDITIONS.
OTHERWISE, SELECT THE 'OR' OPTION IF YOU YOU WISH TO QUERY EXOPLANETS SATISFYING EITHER CONDITION.
NOTE: THIS OPTION ONLY BECOMES RELEVANT IF ALL SIX FIELDS ARE FILLED IN.
