Extrasolar planet. Artwork of land and oceans on an Earth-like extrasolar planet. A planet's orbit and its size have to fit within a narrow range in order to have a surface temperature suitable for liquid water, and to retain an atmosphere. Once an Earth-like world forms, it is thought that the origin of life can follow soon afterwards.
