Resource Description

This excellent introduction to the study of the exoplanets discovered so far provides an introduction to planets, focuses on some unusual exoplanets, and contemplates the possibility of life elsewhere in the galaxy. Written without the use of mathematics, this book may appeal to students who can easily understand the general concepts before they dig deeper into the topic. Useful in grades 10-12 as a starting point for students interested in exoplanets and life on other planets, to assist with research projects, and as a supplement to the Science 10 textbook.
