Caption: Earthlike planet in Orion Nebula, artwork. A small moon is at upper left. A planet's orbit and its size have to fit within a narrow range for it to have a surface temperature suitable for liquid water, and for it to retain an atmosphere. Also seen here are nebulae (green), clouds of gas and dust where new stars may form. As of 2010, hundreds of planets have been detected around other stars.
