Exoearth

(Exo-earth)
(Earth-like exoplanet)

The term Exoearth (or Exo-earth) is used to indicate an Earth-like Extra Solar Planet, e.g., a Rocky Planet with a mass not much different than Earth's. A planet which has been so referenced is Ross 128 b, whose mass is not fully determined, but could be no more than 35% larger than Earth's. This is close given the wide range of planet masses: the term Super-Earth has been cited as applicable to planets up to 10 times Earth mass.
