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.

  1. NASA: *Uploads a video about exoplanets*
    Me: Tatooine, Hoth, Alderaan, D-Qar, Endor, Ilum, Exegol, Scarif, and many more star wars planets.

  2. Nobody:

    Me trying to act like an alien so NASA would notice me: 😱😱😲😲😲🧐🧐🧐😰😰😰😰😰👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽🌎🌎🌎🌎

  3. Us: minding our own buisness. NASA: uploads a random video about a random topic that nobody asked for. Us: understandable. Have a great orbit.

  4. Wow thank you NASA for explaining about exoplanet. While I'm an EXOL, fans of EXO 🙂 ♡

    And maybe this is the origin of my 9 handsome and talented boys ^.^

  5. 1 corinthians 15:1-4

    Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
    2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
    3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
    4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

  6. Just imagine there our other life in other galaxy's and in the other galaxy they try to figure if there is another life in our galaxy.

  7. Wow.. Im EXO fan (the fandom called EXO-L), one of the best K-pop Idol, I knew 'EXO Planet' word first from them.. until I read other fans comment about this video

  8. I have to thank SM and EXO, because since the beginning of EXO's debut they used space theory, so all their fans flocked to watch videos like this to solve their theory but in fact until now we EXO fans have not been able to solve it. But we get a lot of material about the sick earth and what will happen in the future according to science. Just for info, my idol group is called EXO and the name is taken from one of the planet names EXOplanet and that's the reason why they always use the theory about outer space.

  9. I study things like this just because I want to try to understand and solve the theory of my favorite group EXO from Korea. Ls you guys must have run here for answers or hints right?

  10. I dreamt about going to an exoplanet similar to earth, with human like species in it one time and now I'm curious. I realize I actually want to go to an earth-like exoplanet and discover their own cultures 🙂

  11. Hello. It's me again with the few promises..:) In te April month, if Alfa Centauri do not will disturb this… By the closest star behind must be a view of "the Centaurs planet…" It is the little elative specie to us rom the pre-Spinosaurus the times… "the fresh archaic genetically different validity in the our nature is Echidna… 1726 a. Jusi.. 10,8 tous. in the our time… The mine country – Supreme States of America (but… if does interesting – president of Russia is one by one like Lithuania's singe L. Adomaitis..). Te next planet "with America will be visible later… Our specie's planet…

  12. 3426 Alius found a planet 728 Jova in revolution… For the compensation (they in the revolution already..?! I 3426 Alius this event was in the year 916) they the very smartly detected the another planet "by the this event…" OUR SPECIE'S (!). This planet for the telescopes will be available here in this the year in the 1't th days of Mai in the higher – left position by the Hercules Const.. Planet with Supreme States of America (it sems – it s the much younger country than the our U.S.A). Roma – Sora like in the Centaurs pl. 1726 Jusi. Go WW1. Planet's age – 11 thousands the years a. Akius or – 31 thousands in the our time…

  13. Planet Salia (such decision of smb. in the your NASA…). 2348 a. Jehova (14285 y.o.t.). Goes a 3'th travel to find a new continent… If do You think, that such THE SAME LEVEL'S the events do not exist in the planets which age is 12 – 14 billions y. a. Jehova… – it will be a mistake… Specie – Stegosauroids… Planet without the any "Lithuania like". Planet with the small nations the number (because a forever question is "a solidarity in believe …and – an imediate harmony together…") etc. Be..:)
