Many systems seem to have rocky planets farther inward than we do, for example, and some even have “hot Jupiters” very close to their star. Ambitious space experiments should make it possible to image earthlike planets outside the solar system and even to obtain information about their habitability as we search for life elsewhere.

Former NASA astrophysicist Jeanne Cavelos examines the scientific possibility of the fantastical world of Star explains to non-technical readers how the course of science might soon intersect with such fantasies as interstellar travel, robots capable of thought and emotion, habitable alien planets, bizarre intelligent life forms, high-tech weapons and spacecraft, and advanced Brand: St.

Wolff. Astronomers using data from Kepler have discovered two stars, both with multiple orbiting Earth-sized planets. One has three planets all almost exactly the mass of Earth. The first exoplanetary system is located in the star K, characterized by these researchers as a red dwarf type M3V from observations made with the Gran Telescopio Canarias (GTC), at the Roque de los Muchachos .Tony Rothman's first book, written just after graduating college, was The World is Round (Ballantine, ), a science fiction novel about the evolution of society on a non-earthlike planet.
