In 1995, astronomers detected 51 Pegasi, the first exoplanet - a planet orbiting a star other than our sun.

Since that time the search for a planet like Earth has been like Goldilocks's search. Explore the ongoing hunt for exoplanets in the habitable zone - where they might even support life.

Experience humankind's search for a planet with conditions that could be "just right".
