    Exoplanets This is a Wikipedia book, a collection of Wikipedia articles that can be easily saved, imported by an external electronic rendering service, and ordered as a printed book. Edit this book: Book Creator Wikitext. Exoplanets: Finding, Exploring, and Understanding Alien Worlds probes the basis for possible answers to the fundamentals questions asked about these planets orbiting stars other than our Sun. This book examines what such planets might be like, where they are, and how we find around ten.

    Exoplanets orbit their own special star, called a host star. Host stars can come in all different colors, sizes and temperatures. Sometimes exoplanets even orbit around more than one star in a system! This state-of-the-art reference work includes over 15 sections dealing with all aspects of exoplanets and exobiology research, including historic aspects, the Solar System as a template, objects at the planet-to-star transition, exoplanet detection and characterization with related instrumentation, technology and software tools, planet and planet-system statistics with recent and planned.

    Exoplanets and Alien Solar Systems is also available as an eBook in Kindle format. You don't need a Kindle to read the eBook: with Amazon's free Kindle Apps you can read the book on your computer (PC or Mac), on the iPad, as well as on several types of phone (iPhone, Blackberry, Android, Windows Phone 7 [Kindle book]).   Exoplanets are also in different orbits around their stars. If an orbit is too close, the exoplanet will be very hot. If it has an orbit that is too far away from its star, the exoplanet will be very cold. When an exoplanet's orbit is not too close or too far away from its star, the temperature mayFile Size: 4MB.
