Habitable Exoplanets


I developed a machine learning Python program that uses a Support Vector Machine classifier from the sklearn module to predict if an exoplanet is in the habitable zone of its star system (the zone where liquid water can exist). The features of the planet required by the classifier to make the prediction are the orbital period of planet in days, number of planets in the system, and number of stars in the system.

I used the astroquery module to obtain the data from the Open Exoplanet Catalog

Here are some pictures of the program:
