Where can we find exoplanets?

Exoplanets can be found across the universe...
We can uncover these planets by observing stars for long periods of time.

How do we observe stars?

There are multiple ways of observing stars. We can observe them from space or from Earth. During its mission, the Kepler Telescope helped catalog thousands of exoplanets. Observatories such as the La Silla observatory help us find exoplanets directly from Earth, saving time and money.

How does ExoBoost
help our quest?

ExoBoost leverages artificial and machine intelligence to find new exoplanets that haven't been observed before. Using existing data that moniters the star's movement, ExoBoost will be able to find new planets based on planets already orbitting the star.
