PLOT EXOPLANET DATA

EXOPLANET QUERY SELECT PAGE

DATABASE LAST UPDATED ON Wednesday 4th of October 2017

DATABASE SINCE Sunday 2nd of July 2017 INCLUDES THE PLANETS OF OUR SOLAR/SUN SYSTEM.

SELECT THE DESIRED SPECTRAL TYPE OF EXOPLANET STARS YOU WISH TO QUERY (THE SUN IS TYPE 'G')
NOTE: OFTEN THE SPECTRAL TYPE OF THE EXOPLANET STAR IS UNKNOWN AND AS A RESULT THESE RECORDS WILL NOT BE LISTED




SELECT THE DESIRED FIELD BY WHICH YOU WISH TO ORDER THE QUERY BY.
NOTE: OFTEN THESE PARAMETERS ARE UNKNOWN AND AS A RESULT THESE RECORDS WILL NOT BE LISTED





OPTIONAL ENTRY OF SEARCH STRING.
THIS WILL ONLY RETURN EXOPLANETS/PARENT STARS WITH NAMES CONTAINING THE ENTERED SEARCH STRING.






OPTIONAL ENTRY OF RANKING OFFSET.
THIS WILL ONLY RETURN EXOPLANETS/PARENT STARS WITH A RANKING FROM THAT RANKING OFFSET ONWARDS.
ENTERING A RANKING OFFSET OF "1" WILL RETURN ALL ROWS IN THE QUERY AND IF A NON-INTEGER SUCH
AS "K" OR "89.78" IS ENTERED, THEN AGAIN, ALL THE ROWS IN THE QUERY WILL BE DISPLAYED.
THIS WILL ALSO BE THE CASE IF IT IS LEFT EMPTY OR A VALUE OF ZERO "0" IS ENTERED.
IF A NEGATIVE INTEGER SUCH AS "-78" IS ENTERED, THEN IT WILL BE CONVERTED TO ITS ABSOLUTE VALUE OF "78".






OPTIONAL ENTRY OF PARAMETERS TO ONLY RETURN EXOPLANETS WITHIN DEFINED LIMITS OF (A) GIVEN PARAMETER(S)
USEFUL FOR FINDING EXOPLANETS OF EARTH LIKE MASS OR RADIUS IN THE HABITABLE ZONE.

JUST ONE PAIR OF DEFINING LIMITS NEED BE SUBMITTED, BUT MORE TO IF SO DESIRED.

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, OTHER THAN DECLINATION, STELLAR METALLICITY OR ABSOLUTE BOLOMETRIC MAGNITUDE 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 NO VALID PAIR(S) OF DEFINING LIMITS ARE SUBMITTED, THEN THIS OPTION WILL BE IGNORED IN THE QUERY.

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 THE DEFINING LIMITS OF THE EXOPLANET RADIUS AND MASS ARE SUBMITTED.
OR

AND

DO YOU WISH TO HAVE THE NUMBER OF EXOPLANETS IN A PARTICULAR SYSTEM SATISFYING THE SEARCH CRITERIA DISPLAYED?
DOING SO WILL SLOW DOWN THE EXECUTION OF THE QUERY SIGNIFICANTLY WHEN HUNDREDS OF ROWS ARE TO BE RETURNED.
NOTE: THIS OPTION ONLY BECOMES RELEVANT IF ONE OR MORE EXOPLANET FIELDS IN THE TABLE JUST ABOVE ARE SUBMITTED.
NO
