Exoplanet Types: Worlds Beyond Our Solar System

Vote for this video by social sharing!
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 in our own planetary system.

    There is life out there somewhere just a matter of time before we find the planet

  2. Carl Virkus

    I wonder if we’re the only ones in this universe, I don’t believe so, there’s got 2 be life of some sort on another Planet somewhere out there, I’ll be searching the Sky at Night through my telescope until I find it, hopefully!!!!!!🤡👍🤣LOL

    I’m here for the excitement and childlike sense of wonder in the narrator’s voice 😇

    I always knew, since I was a kid that planets in our solar system are but one possible variation in a multitude of others when scientists where still arguing whether there are other planets in the universe or not. It all goes to the inverted pyramid idea: matter accumulation is inverse in proportion with size and number. This is the golden rule that I don’t have to scour the universe to prove its validity

  63. David Akinmoyede

  64. EpicallyAverageDude

    I really like these kinds of videos, I hope they make more!

  65. Lets Explore Space

    Wow, these animations are so awesome! Some of these exoplanets are seriously so interesting. There’s tonnes of exoplanets that have the potential to hold life given their distance and axial tilt from their host star. Take Kepler 186-f for example – its really awesome.

    I actually created an in-depth video on Kepler 186f the other day if anyone is interested :)

    Like 855….O Universo guarda mistérios fantásticos! Tenho certeza que ha vida lá fora.

  69. Kimberly G.

    I wonder if there is an effort underway to come up with a naming convention that isn’t so solar-system-centric? Something more rigorous like the system for biological taxonomy: Domain/Kingdom/Phylum/Class/etc.

  70. Sushii!

    Nasa makes nice animation wtf
