Submission + - Transit Method Reveals Many Extrasolar Planets (space.com)

eldavojohn writes: "You might recall not too long ago the first photo of an extra solar planet or, more recently, the mapping & speculation on these planets that lie outside our own solar system. Long since those first few spotted in the 90s, we're now starting to find them in droves due to the popularity of a method that relies on the planet passing directly between the viewer on earth and the star that it orbits. Be sure to check out Space.com's list of the most interesting extrasolar planets. Will we ever find Earth 2.0 candidates?"
