Out There: The Quest for Extrasolar Worlds
For thousands of years, humanity believed the Earth was the centre of the Universe.
Yet thanks to our curiosity, imagination and urge to explore, we now know that planets like Earth are nothing special in the Cosmos.
The Sun is an ordinary star among hundreds of billions in our galaxy. With the world’s most powerful telescopes we explore more and more of the Universe and what we're discovering is surpassing the wildest expectations of scientists and science fiction writers.
Most stars have planets. Planets are far more common than we thought. An unbelievably huge diversity of worlds exists out there, just waiting to be discovered.
