A Galaxy Full of Strange Planets!

Hey everyone,

It's been many weeks, but now seems the appropriate time for another post. 

So, we're living in a galaxy chock-full of strange and wonderful exoplanets. Almost every new discovery yields a planet even stranger than those from before! This leaves us with one observation: our solar system is perhaps the most vanilla of them all in terms of strange planets. Well, relative to us that is. Taken from space.com, I hope that the infographic below will be as interesting to you as it was to me.

160 billion alien planets fill our galaxy in this SPACE.com infographic.
