    Default A History of Planet Detection in 60 Seconds



    Stumbled across this blog entry by Mr. Hugh Osborn with nice animated graph charting planetary detection since 1750: A History Of Planet Detection in 60 Seconds | Lost in Transits

    Though everyone with an interest in exoplanets might enjoy.

    Hi Bryan. I usually only check the planets, moon, and solar sub-forums on here, so I almost missed your great thread here. This is a wonderful time scale animated representation of the planets discovered. Thanks for finding and sharing this interesting link with us Bryan, and the kindest of regards.
