Extreme Planets

For centuries, humanity has wondered whether we are alone in the universe. The 1995 discovery of the first planet orbiting another star, since followed by the discovery of hundreds of extra solar planets, brings us closer to knowing the answer. Extreme Planets looks at what makes a planet “Earth-like” and explores distant worlds that might fit the conditions we seek. From water worlds to molten landscapes, inhabitable moons to planets with multiple suns, these exotic worlds aren’t just science fiction anymore!
