Anyone who has studied in the field of astronomy in the past couple of years knows how exciting the idea of exoplanets are. Most scientists agree that we most likely have life in distant star systems. Discovering new exoplanets not only enables scientists to gain a better understanding for our universe, it also increases the chances of us finding a distant earth.
