OUR SOLAR SYSTEM MIGHT BE UNIQUE IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE!
Scientists now believe that there are as many planets (if not more) in our Milky Way Galaxy as stars– hundreds of billions! So far, we have confirmed the existence of nearly
900 other worlds orbiting distant stars and there are thousands more still under investigation. As we search, we are learning that the solar system we call home may be an odd duck when compared to the massive diversity of these other planetary systems.
