"Each one of them is a new world, a brand new planet. I get excited about every one because we don't know anything about them."

The first exoplanets were confirmed in the early 1990s, which means we've set an impressive pace for discovery.

NASA announced the planet count had hit 4,000 in June 2019 and it took less than three years to add another thousand to that haul.
