Hundreds of planets have been discovered orbiting stars beyond the Sun. Our solar system is not alone in the universe, and with rapidly improving technology and recent endeavors like the Kepler Telescope, the discovery of exoplanets brings us one step closer to the possibility of finding an Earth-like world. How will this change how we view our place in the universe? Are we alone?
By using new technology and telescopes, we continue to gain a better understanding of our universe. Visit the Explore the Universe exhibit at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. to see some of these revolutionary instruments created to expand our world.
