    • Atmosphere
    • Gravity
    • Hydrographics
    • Size
  • Biological factors: Does the environment support life?
  • Chemical factors: Does the environment support a beneficial biochemistry?

Biotic vs. Abiotic[edit]

  • Life-supporting environments are called biotic as in capable of supporting organic lifeforms.
  • Environments which do not support conventional life are known as abiotic, or not capable of supporting organic lifeforms.
