This visualisation shows more than 500 exoplanets discovered before October 2015 (about 1/4 of all known exoplanets), arranged according to their temperature and density, showing the incredible variety of the extraterrestrial worlds.

Various known classes of exoplanets are shown on the graphic, such as super-earths, hot jupiters, hot neptunes, water worlds, gas dwarfs or superdense diamond planets.

 All visualisations are based on the estimated radius and temperature of the planet, however other factors, such as density, age or stellar metallicity were also taken into consideration. These visualisations were meant to be as accurate as possible, however the true nature of the portrayed exoplanets might turn out to be radically different.
