Caption: Alien landscape. Artwork of the view from the surface of an extrasolar planet orbiting in the habitable zone of its parent star (upper centre). Liquid water is seen on the surface of the planet. 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. As of 2010, hundreds of planets have been detected around other stars.
