New, in the Search for Exoplanets

The search for expolanets continues, adding not only to the three hundred already discovered, but finding smaller planets (Earth-sized ones are no longer too small to spot), and also doing so in unexpected places-even tiny stars apparently have planets.

It also seems to be the case that more is discernible from those views, with a new interpretive technique reported as a viable method for detecting water on the small and rocky bodies.
