Kepler-22b
An exoplanet orbiting Kepler-22, a Sun-like star. Astronomers believe that liquid water could exist on the planet's surface and consider it to orbit within the "habitable zone", meaning that the planet may be able to sustain organic life.
J1407b
First discovered in 2012, this exoplanet orbits a relatively young star (16 million years old) and is either a large gas giant or a brown dwarf planet. This planet is sometimes referred to as "Super Saturn", but with a ring radius of 90 million kilometres, it is over 640 times larger than the one in the Solar System we call home.​​​​​​​
