The Convention of the Metre (Convention du Mètre) is a treaty that created the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (BIPM), an intergovernmental organization under the authority of the General Conference on Weights and Measures (CGPM) and the supervision of the International Committee for Weights and Measures (CIPM).

The BIPM acts in matters of world metrology, particularly concerning the demand for measurement standards of ever increasing accuracy, range and diversity, and the need to demonstrate equivalence between national measurement standards.

General notation

RAD : Radius of the body in kilometers (km)

DIA : Diameter of the body in kilometers (km)

DEN : Density of the body in kilogram per cubic meter (kg/m3)

GRA : Gravity of the body in metre per second squared (m/s2)

TEM : Temperature of the body in degree Kelvin (°K)

PRE : Pressure of the body in kilo newton per square metre (kN/m2)

AT : Axial tilt of the body in degrees (deg)

ALB : Albedo of the body , without units

EV : Escape velocity of the body in kilometers per second (km/s)

ST : Spectral type, without units

LUM : Luminosity of the star in jules per second (J/s)

SE : Surface emission of the star in jules per square metre per second (J/m2*s)

Extrasolar planets notation

EU : Earth Units

Reliable Data

Scientific Data sources

Building on its strengths in science and its experience with large space data information, Kosmo has embarked on a major interdisciplinary effort to curate a broad range of scientific data, and put it in a form directly suitable for systematic use in our space portal.

NSSDC

The National Space Science Data Center serves as the permanent archive for NASA space science mission data. "Space science" means astronomy and astrophysics, solar and space plasma physics, and planetary and lunar science.

NEA

The NASA Exoplanet Archive is an online astronomical exoplanet and stellar catalog and data service that collates and cross-correlates astronomical data and information on exoplanets and their host stars and provides tools to work with these data.

SAO/NASA/ADS

The SAO/NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS) is a Digital Library portal for researchers in Astronomy and Physics, operated by the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory (SAO) under a NASA grant.

CDS

Centre de Données astronomiques de Strasbourg; Strasbourg astronomical Data Center (CDS) is dedicated to the collection and worldwide distribution of astronomical data and related information.

PHL

The Planetary Habitability Laboratory (PHL) is a research and education virtual laboratory dedicated to studies of the habitability of Earth, the Solar System, and exoplanets.

MPC

The Minor Planet Center, or MPC, is the single worldwide location for receipt and distribution of positional measurements of minor planets, comets and outer irregular natural satellites of the major planets.

arxiv.org

arXiv is an e-print service in the fields of physics, mathematics, computer science, quantitative biology, quantitative finance and statistics. Submissions to arXiv should conform to Cornell University academic standards. arXiv is owned and operated by Cornell University, a private not-for-profit educational institution. arXiv is funded by Cornell University Library, the Simons Foundation and by the member institutions.

IAU

The International Astronomical Union (IAU) was founded in 1919. Its mission is to promote and safeguard the science of astronomy in all its aspects through international cooperation.

ISO

(International Organization for Standardization) is the world’s largest developer of voluntary International Standards. International Standards give state of the art specifications for products, services and good practice, helping to make industry more efficient and effective. Developed through global consensus, they help to break down barriers to international trade.
