Long ago, we lived in a universe with only a few known planets, all orbiting our sun. But new discoveries mark a scientific breakthrough: it has been confirmed that there are more than 5,000 planets outside our solar system.

On March 21, the planetary odometer was turned on and the latest array of 65 exoplanets – the planets outside our next solar system – were added to NASA’s Exoplanet archive. The archive records the exoplanet findings that appear in the scientific papers reviewed by Pierre, which are confirmed using multiple detection methods or analytical techniques.

The more than 5,000 planets discovered so far include small rocky worlds such as Earth, gas giants many times the size of Jupiter, and “hot Jupiters” in orbits around stars. We have “super-earths” in our system, which are bigger rock worlds than us and smaller versions of the “mini-Neptunes” Neptune. Add planets orbiting two stars simultaneously and planets orbiting the broken remnants of dead stars.
