What I find fascinating about discovering exoplanets is how boring it seems to be to the general masses. With the sheer number of them discovered so
far, to me it is extremely exciting and starting to open the door that actually our Universe is teeming with life.
It is relatively still a new discovery, the first exoplanet was confirmed in 1992.
So for many, many years we had no way to even prove that Earth like planets or any planets at all existed outside our solar system. Now we have found
a tremendous amount over a very short time. According to exoplanets. org: 4,201 planets have been found. exoplanets.org...
It seems to not be such a favorite pop culture topic for discussion. The Cosmos in general seems to be something we (modern humans) take for granted.
Finding all these exoplanets increases the probability of life existing elsewhere quite loftily and in my opinion is proof enough of life within the
Universe as prominent and dispersed as all other related existences within this realm of reality.
Imagine another fifty or hundred years down the line, I would imagine the number of discovered exoplanets will be in the hundreds of thousands if not
