Die Vielfalt der Planeten

MikroMakro Parcours

Exoplanets - planets outside our Solar system - were detected for the first time in human history two decades ago.

Since then, we have detected thousands of such exoplanets with telescopes on Earth and in space. How many of these can be «Earth-like»? What is the diversity of planet types? How many exoplanets can we actually not see with our technology? And is the Solar System exotic or common?
