I strive to follow the style of Edward Tufte. There were designed for introducing a concept at professional presentations and lectures. The figures are under the Creative Common license. However, I would be glad if you credit me when you are using one of the figures in a presentation or in a publication.

Plots made using exoplanet using data from University of Puerto Rico Planetary Habitability site (it includes unconfirmed Kepler candidate exoplanets) and the Extrasolar Encyclopedia site (downloads on 10/3/2018). In one of the plots, one can see that the planet mean density exceeds the mass density of
metallic iron. Therefore these densities should be considered with caution.
The plots are made for education purpose. The IPython notebook used to created the figures is provided so that you can re-create new ones when more planets are found.
