New Planets
Fomalhaut b oribiting

What is the future of exoplanet discovery? This artist’s concept shows the Jupiter-sized planet Fomalhaut b orbiting its star. The planet is thought to have a Saturn-like ring, and the star also is surrounded by a ring of material. For many years the new planet discoveries were mainly gas giant planets, but now more Earth-sized planets are being found. Image credit: ESA, NASA and L. Calçada (ESO)
