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.

We’re doing science at 17,500 miles per hour! The International Space Station is a state-of-the-art microgravity laboratory that is unlocking discoveries not possible on Earth, and helping us push farther into deep space. We’re testing technologies that are critical to our return to the Moon and great leap to Mars. Station research has contributed to

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
