The brightness drop is when there is a decrease in brightness and is used to determine the radius of a planet. Once the radius of the newly found planet has been calculated, the density of the planet can then be calculated, DENSITY=MASS/VOLUME (4/3 pi r^2), these properties are necessary for determining whether the planet would be sufficient to support life. The orbital radius dictates the surface temperature of the planet. If the radius is too...
