Alan Boss’s book offers an enjoyable insider’s view on the birth of the exoplanet field: from the first radial velocity discoveries until the launch of the Kepler mission, Alan gives a diary-like summary of the major new exoplanet discoveries and results, including the controversies, debates, and the impact of politics and space policies on the science of exoplanets.

“Exoplanets and Alien Solar Systems is a book not only about extrasolar planets but also about our own solar system and our presence in the universe.” “The author talks to the reader and keeps the reader wanting more and more. It was hard to avoid flipping fast to the next page and see what was next.”. The Handbook of Exoplanets contains 15 sections dealing with all aspects of exoplanets and exobiology research, including historic aspects, the Solar System as a template, objects at the planet-to-star transition, exoplanet detection and characterization with related instrumentation, technology and. As explained in the book, there is a bit of a grey area as to the first exoplanet that was discovered because the earliest findings were tentative and were claimed as exoplanets years later. The discovery years adopted in Exoplanets and Alien Solar Systems are explicitly those reported by the Extrasolar Planets Encyclopedia. rows  Primary planet name Mass [M jup] Radius [R jup] Mass [M earth] Radius [R earth] Number .

Author(s): Simon Goodwin. There are 4, known exoplanets, or planets outside our solar system that orbit a star, as of May 1, ; only a small fraction of these are located in the vicinity of the Solar System. Within 10 parsecs ( light-years), there are 97 exoplanets listed as confirmed by the NASA Exoplanet Archive. Among the over known stars within 10 parsecs, around 60 have been confirmed to have.

KUBYSHKINA D., FOSSATI L., MUSTILL A., CUBILLOS P., DAVIES M. et al. We use the term "exoplanets" and not "extrasolar planets" in this book. Exoplanets is the most direct derivative from the Greek language, from which the word "planet" originates. (Note that the word "extrasolar" is derived from Latin.) It is most fitting that the field be named as traditionally as possible, and there is none more traditional.
