This Blog's History: Growing List of Planets

A couple of months ago I wrote a post on the quickly growing number of known planets outside our own Solar System.  For This Friday in This Blog's History I point you back to that post.

Growing List of Planets

At that time there were 3,607 confirmed planets outside our Solar System.  I bet that number has grown since I wrote that post.  Let's find out.  Yep!  As of June 1 (the latest update) there are 3,610 planets, an increase of 3 since I wrote that post.  Astronomy...discovering whole new worlds...literally!
