What Is an Exoplanet?

Vote for this video by social sharing!
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.

  40. Shyning

    I love the animation !
    Thanks for this great video, nothing new to me but it was really nice listening to it, it is very informative but kept toned down enough to be short and effective at explaining what they are and why do we study them (and how, briefly).
    Great enthusiasm as well ! I am sure it could be a great format to teach the basics to younger ones or simply to people who may never have gotten an interest into this and would from being shown this !

    LOL I’m so sorry to say this but like I’m a young learner and it’s so cool to see all of these and that you guys are studying them and if we ever dreamed of putting someone on an exoplanet I hope I could be involved in that when I’m older!

    Gotta love the groovy background music to convey the mysterious existence of our outside neighbors! ALIENS BETTER COME VISIT US ONE DAY IF THEY DEVELOPED HIGHLY SUPERIOR TECHNOLOGY WE KNOW NOTHING OF!

  57. A Lemon

    Honestly I like that there is not too much enthusiasm. Because when there is it makes it feel way too childish for my liking and I quickly loose interest. So I like that the narrators are talking in a calm normal way and not like “HIII! TPDAY WE TALKING ABOUT **earrape** EXOPLANETS!” So yay…I guess?
