NASA opened up access to the exoplanets

A team of scientists NASA, working with astronomical satellite Kepler, which is specifically designed to search for exoplanets updated online archive of mission and opened the database.

Researchers have placed all the available data about the planets on the site NASA Exoplanet Archive. Last catalog of candidate planets Kepler was updated in February 2012, and since then the number of such facilities has increased by 20%. Total number of planetary candidates on the roster — 2740, and confirmed exoplanets — 870 (orbiting 642 stars). The catalog will be dynamic: new exoplanet will be entered into the archive immediately, said team member Steve Howell: "On the day when we find a new planet in the list, the archive becomes aware of it. And then everyone, including us, can work with this list. "

Exoplanets — those planets that orbit stars outside our solar system. The planets are very small and dim compared to stars, for a long time the problem of detecting planets around other stars has been intractable.

Mission Kepler, whose goal was just the discovery of these planets was to be completed in November 2012, but scientists have decided to extend it until 2016.
