2. Rocky planets
Mass really does matter. Rocks much smaller than ours lack the gravity to hold an atmosphere, so liquid surface water won't stick around. Anything twice our size or larger is likely to gather dust, gas, and ice, creating a barren world like Jupiter or Neptune. Orbs 0.8 to 1.5 times Earth's radius can be both rocky and wet, and we've found around 1,000 of them.
