Irradiance & Temperature[edit]

  • This is not for the article nor is it original research.
    It's a pretty simple formula to calculate irradiance from Star Temperature & Radius, and the semi-major axis of the planet.
KEPLER 37 b c d Earth
Star Temperature 5417
Star Radius 0.77
Semimajor axis (AU) 0.1003 0.1368 0.2076
62197.08 33434.87 14518.35 1366.05 [1]
Percent of Earth's 4553.1% 2447.6% 1062.8% 100%
Known temperature, Pre-GHG 700 K 255 K
247°C -18°C

I'm not suggesting these figures be put in the article, I would just rather users were not ignorant of how HOT these planets are, so they aren't inserting silly ideas about habitability where they don't belong. Hopfully someone will find references for any published missing temperatures. thanks. (talk) 11:00, 17 April 2013 (UTC)
