Descripción
For hundreds of years, the Solar System and its planetary bodies were the only example in which to base our models of planet formation and evolution. With the discovery of exoplanets, a much greater diversity of planetary types and system architectures have been uncovered. Nevertheless, the Solar System planets remain our best test bed to understand planetary physics and interpret low signal-to-noise exoplanetary observations. Here, we put the Solar System planets in context to the broader planetary population in our galaxy and detail the several observations of our Solar System planets that have been performed with the goal of observing them as exoplanets. We pay special attention to the only planet known to host life in our galaxy so far, the Earth.

Exoplanetas y Astrobiología

La búsqueda de vida en el Universo se ha visto impulsada por los recientes descubrimientos de planetas alrededor de otras estrellas (los llamados exoplanetas), convirtiéndose en uno de los campos más activos dentro de la Astrofísica moderna. En los últimos años los descubrimientos cada vez más numerosos de nuevos exoplanetas y los últimos avances
