Kepler-62 e is an extra solar planet orbiting the star Kepler-62. It is on the inner edge of its host star's habitable zone, but is cooler than Earth. Because of high stellar flux (1.2 Earth) It may have a thick atmosphere like Venus and higher temperatures than expected. To be terraformed some of the atmosphere would need to be removed. It may or may not have large amounts of water on its surface (could be an ocean planet if the latter is true). It has a radius of approximately 1.61 Earth's and recieves 1.2 times the amount of solar flux.
