Exoplanetary science

You have no idea just how far away exoplanets are. Really, you don’t. Yes, you may have constructed for yourself the illusion of knowing – by means of ever larger units of distance, for example.

You do not know.

I don’t, that is for sure. Strangely, that is exactly what I love about it. It’s another one of those things which draw me to physics. Honestly, exoplanets, too, are something we have no right to know about whatsoever. 🙂
