    51 Pegasi b (abbreviated 51 Peg b), sometimes though unofficially named Bellerophon, is an extrasolar planet approximately 50 light-years away in the constellation of Pegasus. 51 Pegasi b was the first planet to be discovered orbiting a main sequence star, the Sun-like 51 Pegasi (the first exoplanets at all were discovered in 1992 by Aleksander Wolszczan around pulsar PSR 1257), and marked a breakthrough in astronomical research. It is the prototype for a class of planets called hot Jupiters.

Summary of the top 5 'habitable planets'. Ps. Things are advancing so fast with recent discoveries with the Kepler Probe that we now already have an even stronger candidate than these five, Kepler-186f (see next pin on this Board), inside the Goldilocks Zone for the Red Dwarf Star it orbits & just 10% more massive than Earth. Place your bets please!

Scientists have only searched through a tiny fraction of our galaxy, and with the fast advances in technology, we can expect many more interesting discoveries in the future. But for now, check out the handy infographic below, courtesy of Space.com, displaying all known types of alien worlds.

The Cosmic Spare Tire (IC 5148) is a beautiful planetary nebula located some 3000 light-years away in the constellation of Grus (The Crane). The nebula has a diameter of a couple of light-years, and it is still growing at over 50 kilometres per second — one of the fastest expanding planetary nebulae known.

Planets...In a letter to Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung wrote: "My studies in astrology are fascinating...I have come to the firm conclusion that at the moment of birth an individual takes on the characteristic state of the Universe for that moment in time..." ♥

NGC 2207 and IC 2163 are a pair of colliding spiral galaxies about 80 million light-years away in the constellation Canis Major. Both galaxies were discovered by John Herschel in 1835. So far three supernovae have been observed in #NGC2207
