  • Exoplanet Types: Worlds Beyond Our Solar System


    When we describe different types of exoplanets – planets outside our solar system – what do we mean by hot Jupiters, warm Neptunes, and super-Earths? Since we're still surveying and learning about the variety of worlds out there among the stars, it's sometimes helpful to refer to characteristics they share with planets we're familiar with in our own planetary system.

    Hello! Vincent and the Nirks are back for their newest adventure! It's time to Meet the Exoplanets! Exoplanets are planets that orbit other stars. In solar systems beyond our own. Join Vincent as he takes you to meet some of the most amazing and wondrous planets discovered outside of our solar system.

    Out Beyond the 8 planets that you already know
    There are many more solar systems to explore and we should go
    Different stars that have their own planets and their own solar systems
    Would you like to go with me and see if we can meet some?

    The closest star to your sun is Proxima Centauri
    I’m an exoplanet that orbits it named Proxima Centauri b
    In a triple star system, with stars Alpha Centauri A and B
    I’m in the habitable zone, which means there could be life on me

    I’m 51 Pegasi b also known as Dimidium
    I was the first exoplanet found orbiting a star much like your sun
    I’m about half the mass of Jupiter but with a larger diameter
    My orbit takes only about 4 days, because I’m very close to my star

    Let’s Go Meet an exoplanet – they orbit other stars
    Some are very similar, some very different from ours
    Strange and mystical worlds with wonders beyond imagination
    Let’s go find some Exo Planets and see if we can meet them

    Kepler 16 b – also known unofficially as Tatooine – like in star wars
    A planet that orbits not one but two stars – my orbit is circum-binary
    That means I travel around both stars instead of only one
    And You would see 2 sunsets on me when the day is done

    My name is Methuselah, One of the oldest planets known yet
    I’m about 12.7 billion years old, almost 3 times older than your planet
    I have a circum-binary orbit around two burnt-out stars
    A very old white dwarf star and a neutron star pulsar

    I’m the exoplanet J1407b
    Also known as “Super Saturn” but Saturn’s got nothing on me!
    I have one of the largest known ring systems found in our galaxy
    About 200 times as large as Saturn’s, I’m the new Lord of the Rings


    An exotic exoplanet, I’m Hat-P-7b
    I have very different weather from yours especially when it rains on me
    Instead of raindrops you would see showers of sapphires and rubies
    I have clouds of corundum that could make those jewels, scientists believe

    I’m exoplanet Wasp 12-b and I’m a very strange site to see
    I’m all stretched out like a football because my star is on pulling on me
    That’s because I’m so close to my star, it takes just over one day to orbit
    I’m one of the darkest exoplanets because I eat up light, I absorb it


    I’m TOI 700 d and I’m an exciting discovery
    I’m in the habitable zone of my star, which means there could be life on me
    I’m a little bit bigger than Earth and we could be very similar they say
    I could have oceans and land and friends for you to meet someday

    When my star expanded to a red giant it almost vaporized me
    (A subdwarf star now) I’m much closer to my star than other planets would dare to be
    I’m super fast, a less than six hour orbit, I’m so close that it’s fun
    Hotter than Hot! I’m Kepler 70 b and I’m probably hotter than your SUN

    My name is Trappist the Star and I have Seven planets of my own
    All unique and special including three inside the habitable zone
    There current names are Trappist b -hi, c-hi, d -hi, e-hi, f-hello, g-sup, h-hey
    Together we have one of the most exciting solar systems discovered to this day

    Now you’ve met some exoplanets – they orbit other stars
    In their very own solar systems far outside of ours
    Strange and mystical worlds with wonders beyond imagination
    Keep looking at the stars and maybe you’ll discover one

    Different stars that have their own planets and their own solar systems
    Would you like to go with me and see if we can meet some?

    I’m TOI 1338, and I was a surprising discovery
    I was found by a teenage intern named Wolf Cukier that just started work at NASA recently
    I orbit both stars in my solar system - they are binary
    So, I experience stellar eclipses very regularly

    If you are a Star Trek fan, then you will definitely be a fan of me
    Unofficially known as Vulcan, I was discovered where Star Trek predicted Vulcan to be
    I orbit an orange star in a triple star system named 40 Eridani A
    Only About 16 light years from Earth, I’m 40 Eridani A b - come visit me someday

    Let’s Go Meet an exoplanet – they orbit other stars
    Some are very similar, some very different from ours
    Strange and mystical worlds with wonders beyond imagination
    Let’s go find some Exoplanets and see if we can meet them

    My name is CoRoT 7b and I’m bad to the bone
    I’ve been mistaken for the underworld, so You definitely wouldn’t want to call me home
    I’m close to my star, one orbit takes only 20 hours, My surface is covered in volcanos and lava, not flowers
    The sky literally falls on me, as I rain down rocks you see, A real nightmare it would be if you lived on me

    PSR J1719-1438b
    I have a really long name, but that’s not all that’s special about me
    I orbit an actual millisecond pulsar – a super-fast spinning neutron star
    And I’m so incredibly dense, I’m probably made of crystalline carbon or a giant diamond, how bizarre
    I’m darker than night, I absorb the light, I’m TrES-2b
    I’m gas giant planet a little bigger than Jupiter, but I’m definitely not jolly
    Darker than coal, with an eerie red glow, I can be a little bit scary,
    Consumed by heat and darkness, you’ll never know the secrets that I carry


    A glamourous exoplanet, I’m GJ (Gliese) – 504b
    What can I say, I love pink! It’s the color that looks best on me
    I’m an extremely hot gas giant planet 4 times more massive than Jupiter
    My incredibly intense heat causes me to glow pink, or magenta if you prefer

    I’m under so much pressure and high temperatures I’m 55 Cancri e
    Beneath my molten lava surface could be a precious diamond because I have such high density
    I also have lots of silicates in my atmosphere reflecting light making my sky sparkly
    And through my sparkly sky you would see my sibling planet Galileo watching over me


    They call me Osiris (HD 209458 b)
    I’m an evaporating gas giant, soon just a core is all that will be left of me
    My atmosphere has hydrogen, carbon and oxygen that are all evaporating away
    Orbiting close to a yellow star like your sun, my hydrogen tail creates quite a display

    A beautiful azure blue HD 189773b
    But don’t let my appearance fool you, there is nothing calm about me
    My atmosphere is filled with particles of glass, my wind speeds are extremely fast
    Blowing faster than the speed of sound, I have storms of sideways raining glass swirling all around

    I’m Kepler 1625b a gas giant that is very special you see
    Because I may have an exomoon orbiting around me
    We could be a binary planet too, but our size ratio is much like Earth and your moon
    My companion’s exomoon status is still waiting to be confirmed, we hope it will be soon

    Now you’ve met some exoplanets – they orbit other stars
    In their very own solar systems far outside of ours
    Strange and mystical worlds with wonders beyond imagination
    Keep looking at the stars and maybe you’ll discover one

  • Weird Alien Worlds Beyond Our Solar SystemHD


    Have you ever wondered about planets in other solar systems? Have you ever thought about the possibility of life elsewhere in the Universe? For the first time in human history, we know that planets around other stars not only exist, but are common.

    Alien Worlds focuses on the search and characterization of planets orbiting other stars (called extrasolar planets or “exoplanets”). Over the course of nine modules, we will learn some of the techniques used to discover the thousands of known exoplanets and will discuss how we can use basic scientific tools to characterize the sizes, masses, compositions, and atmospheres of exoplanets. We will also learn about the diversity of stars in the Galaxy to understand how stellar properties affect exoplanet detection techniques and influence planetary formation and habitability.

  • Planets and Exoplanets Size Comparison: Exploring Planets and Exoplanets


    A planet is an astronomical object that is massive enough to get spherical shape due to its own gravity, not so hot and dense to start the nuclear fusion process and its surrounding region should be free of planetesimals or smaller bodies.

    Planets are divided into two main categories: smaller Rocky terrestrials and low-density Giant planets which are further divided into Gas giants and ice giants.

    In the solar system, there are 8 planets: Out of which Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars are rocky planets whereas Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune are low-density Giant planets.

    Jupiter and Saturn are Gas Giants mainly composed of Hydrogen and helium. On the other hand, Uranus and Neptune are Ice Giants composed of water, methane, and ammonia having a thick atmosphere of hydrogen and helium.

    In 2006, a new category of Planet was adopted by the International Astronomical Union called Dwarf planets. Like a planet a dwarf planet orbit a star and is massive to form a spheroid shape, but is not capable to clear its surroundings from other smaller bodies.

    Right now, only 5 Solar system objects are recognized as dwarf planets: Pluto, Eris, Ceres, Haumea, and Makemake. Except for Ceres, all are found beyond the region of Neptune called the Kuiper belt.

    Exoplanets like Super-Earth, Mini-Neptune, and Hot Jupiter have not been found yet in our solar system. Giant Planets that orbit too close to the sun are called hot Jupiters. They resemble planet Jupiter but revolves around its parent star in less than 10 days. Its orbit is even less than one-tenth of the Earth orbit. One of the best known hot Jupiter is 51 pegasi b.

    Exoplanets that revolve around the galactic center directly instead of a Star are known as Rogue Planets. The reason is either they are ejected from the planetary system or never been gravitationally bound by any star or its remnant.

  • 15 Most Terrifying Planets Ever Found


    The Earth is not perfectly spherical, Mercury is the hottest planet, and Jupiter is the largest planet in the Solar System. These simple facts are known even to those with no real knowledge about astronomy. But there are billions of planets in the Universe and some of them are really amazing! For example, there's a planet where night never ends. And it’s not your regular night with stars shining in the beautiful skies — here, it’s pitch dark and scorching hot!

    Have you ever heard about a planet that is so close to its sun that half the planet’s surface is a literal ocean of molten lava? The other half is in eternal darkness because it never sees the sun — the planet is always turned to its star with one side! And between the scorching and the dark, there’s the twilight zone — a thin strip of gloomy nothingness. Yeah, that's spooky. ...So, if you're looking for some astronomy facts and a couple of mind-blowing facts about space, this video is right what you need!

  • Exoplanets: The Quest for Strange New Worlds


    Original air date: January 12 at 7 p.m. PT (10 p.m. ET, 0300 UTC)

    Planets orbiting other stars, or exoplanets, have become an important field of astronomical study over the past two and a half decades. Recent findings from NASA's Kepler mission suggest that nearly every star you see in the night sky probably has exoplanets orbiting it. The number of confirmed exoplanets is now a few thousand. This talk will present a brief history of exoplanet discoveries, the story of the “super-Saturn” extrasolar ring system, and summarize NASA’s ongoing future plans to discover and characterize “strange new worlds.”

    Speaker: Eric Mamajek, Deputy Program Chief Scientist, NASA Exoplanet Exploration Program, JPL

  • What Is an Exoplanet?


    Exoplanets – planets outside our solar system – are everywhere. But why do we study them? What makes them so interesting? At NASA, we're surveying and studying exoplanets to learn all about their weirdness, their variety, and all the fascinating things they can tell us about how planets form and develop.

    The Hubble Telescope orbits our planet, looking out at the big unknown universe. Since it’s out of our atmosphere, the Hubble can see way further than telescopes on land. No clouds up there. This guy helped us confirm the theory about supermassive black holes in the centers of galaxies. It also discovered a whole bunch of new galaxies, including the world's oldest one, which is about 8 billion years older than our Milky Way!

    But let’s travel 25 light-years away to another special star. Fomalhaut. It's almost twice as big and heavy as the Sun. If you look at it from far away, you can see a bright yellow disk around it. It’s a debris disk, full of bits of space rock, and it’s huge. Scientists were curious about it, was all this space dust gonna get smooshed together and become a planet one day? But then they saw something else! Right there, through all that debris, was a massive mysterious object...

  • The journey to Pluto, the farthest world ever explored - Alan Stern


    Check out Alan Stern's Chasing New Horizons:

    View full lesson:

    As of 1989, mankind had successfully sent craft to every known planet in the solar system except one: Pluto. Located in an mysterious region called the Kuiper Belt, Pluto is a scientific goldmine, and could hold clues to the formation of our solar system. Alan Stern explains how NASA's New Horizons mission is going to allow us to see Pluto for the first time.

  • 24 Planets Even Better for Life Than Earth


    How many habitable planets are there? Water is the basis of life in any part of the universe. So potentially inhabited planets must have liquid water on them to support life. An incredible number of circumstances must come together for this. The planet must be in the habitable zone of the star. A little closer to the star, and the water will evaporate, leaving no chance for oceans and seas to form. This is what happened on Venus. Too far from the star, and the planet becomes too cold. Water can only exist in the form of ice on the surface and there just might be liquid water deep below. Neptune is one example of this.

    In our galaxy alone, there are countless stars. Really you can’t count on them. Near each of them may be a planet. They are called exoplanets. And some of them may be in the habitable zone and have everything for life to form on them. From a list of 4,500 known exoplanets, scientists have identified 24 that can be superhabitable. This is the type of planet that is suitable for the existence and evolution of life even more than the Earth!

  • Exoplanets: A Search for New Worlds


    Nestor Espinoza, Space Telescope Science Institute

    Is the Solar System we call home special? Three decades of advances in astronomy have revealed that our home planet is only one small dot in a vast sea of planetary systems in our galaxy. These extra-solar planets—or exoplanets—have been discovered by the thousands, and are challenging our understanding of how planetary systems form and develop. But what are they made of? And how did they get there? We don’t have the answers yet, but we do have some important clues. Join us on this cosmic voyage across our galaxy to explore new worlds beyond our wildest dreams.

    Recorded live on Tuesday, March 3, 2020, at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A.

  • Looking For A New Earth | Planet Hunters | Spark


    The first extra-solar planet – or exoplanet – was only discovered in 1995. Now, a new space-based telescope has discovered thousands more, and some of them may be just like Earth.
    Planet Hunters follows the astrophysicists at the forefront of the search for Earth’s twin, and tells the little-known story of the two Canadians who invented the technique that made modern planet-hunting possible. Gordon Walker and Bruce Campbell also detected the first exoplanet ever discovered, but that’s not what the history books say…

  • What If the Planets Became Our Moon


    What if the Moon was replaced with any other planet from the Solar System? The Moon is the Earth's closest space neighbor and its only natural satellite. It likely formed when a huge, Mars-sized object crashed into our planet billions of years ago. This catastrophe turned Earth into a scorching ball of molten rock. It also pushed some material into its orbit, creating the Moon.

    Now, this heavily cratered sphere moves around our planet. This causes high and low tides around the globe. A bit more than one-fourth the size of Earth, it's the fifth-largest natural satellite in the Solar System. Whatever the satellite looks like, you can always find it in the night sky and sometimes, even during the day. But imagine waking up at night and noticing that the Moon looks somewhat different than usual...

  • A Unique 3D Journey to All the Planets


    Let’s assume that people learned how to breathe in space without special equipment and we found a way to reach any planet in the Solar System. So how about to set off on an amazing journey right now? Wanna know what the surface of other planets looks like? Then join us! We're going to set foot on the surface of each planet in the Solar System and the Sun!

    The Sun's surface looks like scorched earth, Mercury looks eerily similar to the good old Moon, and Venus turns out to be very different from the bluish planet you saw in pictures! Before landing, you have to get through a super-dense atmosphere that's made up of carbon dioxide. Saturn doesn't have any solid surface at all! Can you imagine that? Its temperature and density change the deeper you go. Interested? Then here are the most intriguing facts about our Solar System, and its planets you probably did not know!

  • Public Lecture | Pictures of Other Worlds: Exploring the Atmospheres of Exoplanets


    In less than two decades, scientists have discovered more than a thousand planets orbiting other stars. Now we know that our solar system is not alone ­-- but we still do not know if it is rare or unique. Most of these new planets were not seen directly, but instead were discovered through their influence on their parent star. Directly imaging an exoplanet is very difficult; it requires blocking out the bright light from the star to reveal the faint planet nearby. The Earth, for instance, is 10 billion times fainter than the sun. But now it can be done.

    This lecture presents the first-ever images of planets orbiting other stars. It describes the advances that made these observations possible and present the Gemini Planet Imager, a new advanced-technology camera specifically designed for exoplanet studies and deployed in 2013 on the Gemini Telescope in Chile. It then describes the future of exoplanetary studies and the prospects for achieving the ultimate goal -- the detection of a second “pale blue dot,” an Earth twin with evidence for water and extrasolar life.

    About the Speaker:

    Bruce Macintosh is a professor in the Stanford University Physics Department and the Kavli Institute for Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology, a joint Stanford/SLAC institute. He obtained his PhD at UCLA, working on infrared instrumentation and searches for low-mass companions to stars. As a postdoctoral researcher and staff scientist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, he worked on using adaptive optics to sharpen images made by ground-based telescopes at Lick and Keck observatories. He co-led the team that made the first-ever images of an extrasolar planetary system, discovering four giant planets orbiting the young star HR8799. He is principal investigator for the Gemini Planet Imager.

  • Dr. Jon Jenkins - Chasing Shadow Worlds: Exoplanets from Kepler & Beyond


    NASA Ames Research Director’s Colloquium, August 14, 2014. Recent innovations in astronomy enable us to pursue one of humanity's greatest questions; Are we alone in the Universe? From the Kepler Mission to NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), vast data collection with new telescopes will revolutionize the fields of asteroseismology and exoplanetary science.

    Dr. Jon Jenkins of NASA's Ames Research Center will showcase the accomplishments of the Kepler Mission, which has discovered over 950 confirmed planets and over 3000 planet candidates, and describe the future of exoplanet research.

    The NASA Ames Director's Colloquium Summer Series was presented by the Office of the Chief Scientist as part of the Center's 75th anniversary celebration.

  • What Is the Habitable Zone?


    There's a helpful concept we use to help understand what distance from a given star you might expect to find planets with liquid water on their surface – liquid water being essential for life as we know it. It's called the habitable zone. Every star has a habitable zone, but where that zone lies is different for stars of different sizes and brightness.
