EXOPLANETS: Catalog of Exoplanets

The Planetary Society, founded in 1980 by Carl Sagan, Bruce Murray, and Louis Friedman, inspires and involves the world's public in space exploration through advocacy, projects, and education. Today, The Planetary Society is the largest and most influential public space organization group on Earth. Dedicated to exploring the solar system and seeking life beyond Earth, The Planetary Society is non-governmental and nonprofit and is funded by the support of its members.

How Many Planets Are There?

You can keep track of the growing number of exoplanets with the new Planetary Society online Catalog of Exoplanets.

With the successful launch of Kepler, NASA's exoplanet-finding spacecraft -- and ESA's Corot already in orbit -- the Catalog of Exoplanets will be invaluable for keeping up with the many new upcoming discoveries from space and from the ground.
