April 24, 2014: This week we have added one planet, MOA-bin-1L b, and removed four planets. The four were removed because their planet masses were revised, thus exceeding our limit of 30 Jupiter masses, as defined in our Exoplanet Criteria. Those planets are: HD 16760 b, HD 190228 b, HD 43848 b and HD 5388 b.
April 17, 2014: Today the archive has 10 new planets, including Kepler-186 f, an Earth-radius planet located within the habitable zone of the host star, as featured in today's press release and the published paper.
March 27, 2014: The recent paper by Knutson et al. (2014) reports mass constraints on tertiary companions to a large number of known transiting planets. One of these companions, WASP-8c, falls within our criteria of less than 30 Jupiter masses (Mjup), so we have added it to the Exoplanet Archive.
The NASA Exoplanet Archive collects and serves public data to support the search for and characterization of extra-solar planets (exoplanets) and their host stars. The data include published light curves, images, spectra and parameters, and time-series data from surveys that aim to discover transiting exoplanets. Tools are provided to work with the data, particularly the display and analysis of transit data sets from Kepler and CoRoT. All data are validated by the Exoplanet Archive science staff and traced to their sources. The Exoplanet Archive is the U.S. data portal for the CoRoT mission.
