The plausibility of the planets in Eve Online is very poor. It appears they started out using an accrete based generator and then, seeing a lack of life-friendly worlds, they started arbitrarily assigning planet types without regard to the statistics, most likely to be more science-fiction-friendly. Some capital worlds (Esepcially Vallore, Gallente captial) have a density less than Saturn and seem to be more like a small dyson sphere around an artificial power source.

mapCelestialStatistics

Astronomical statistics for all celestial objects (stars, planets, moons, asteroid belts). Lore interest only.
Column Links to Used Note
celestialID mapDenormalize.itemID * ID of object.
temperature * Temperature on absolute scale. Kelvins. Temperature of most planets are arbitrarily set and are not set anywhere close to their blackbody temperature according to reported luminosity (though thats often off for the star's spectral type as well). Computed blackbody temps are often lower.
spectralClass * Spectral class for stars. Spectral type, subtype, and class are all denormalized into this field - eg. G2 V
luminosity * Luminosity for stars. Relative to sun (Lum of star / lum of sun). Data doesn't correlate well with spectral type on main sequence stars
age * Age of object. Seconds. Divide by 31536000 to convert to years.
life * Level of life on surface.
orbitRadius * Radius of orbit. Meters. 1 AU (output unit of game) is 149598261000 meters.
eccentricity * Eccentricity of orbit.
massDust * Mass of planet. Kilograms. Earth's mass is 5.9736E+24 kilograms.
massGas * Mass of atmosphere. This is not factored into figures for surface gravity or density.
fragmented * 1 if object is fragmented, i.e. asteroid belt.
density * Density of object. Grams/cubic Decimeter. Divide by 1000 to get grams/cubic centimeter. Earth is 5.515 grams/cubic centimeter. Need at least 3500 for a plausible terrestrial planet with a sizable enough iron core.
surfaceGravity * Gravity on surface. Meters per second. Earth is 9.80661 meters per second
escapeVelocity * Velocity for escaping from this object. Meters per second. Earth is 11,186 meters per second
orbitPeriod * Period of orbit. Tenths of a second. Divide by 315360000 to convert to years. 864000 for days.
rotationRate * Period of rotation. Seconds. Divide by 86400 for days, 3600 for hours.
locked * Unknown.
pressure * Atmospheric pressure on surface. Pascals. Divide by 100,000 to convert to bars. The game is dividing by 100,000 and then erroneously labels it as Kilopascals.
radius * Radius of object. Meters
mass * Mass of object. Kilograms
