Out There: The Quest for Extrasolar Worlds

Thanks to our curiosity, imagination and urge toexplore, we now know that planets like our Earth are nothing special in thecosmos. The Sun is just one ordinary star among hundreds of billions in ourgalaxy, the Milky Way. With the world's most powerful telescopes, we are ableto explore more and more of the Universe. What we have found so far hassurpassed even the wildest expectations of scientists as well as authors ofscience fiction. Most stars have planets — it turns out they are more commonthan we thought.
A huge diversity of different worlds is out there, just waiting to bediscovered.
