Fly Through A Swarm of Every Exoplanet Discovered To Date

 Tom Hands, a second-year PhD Student in the Theoretical Astrophysics group at the University of Leicester, produced this visualization of acknowledged exoplanets with data from the Open Exoplanet Catalogue. A dive through data of 1774 planets in about 1081 star systems. From the planets whose courses take thousands of years, to individuals that take only hours or days.

Hands says his visualization structures all of the exoplanets that have been discovered around single stars, "ordered approximately by semi-major axis of biggest orbit," and is "intended to give the viewer an impression of the current distribution of exoplanets."
