As of this date, no extrasolar planets have been discovered.
An extrasolar planet, or exoplanet, is a planet beyond our Solar System, orbiting a star other than our Sun. As of August 2009[update], 373 exoplanets are listed in the Extrasolar Planets Encyclopaedia. The vast majority have been detected through radial velocity observations and other indirect methods rather than actual imaging. Most announced exoplanets are massive gas giant planets thought to resemble Jupiter, but this is a selection effect (bias) due to limitations in detection technology. Projections based on recent detections of much smaller worlds suggest that lightweight, rocky planets will eventually be found to outnumber extrasolar gas giants.
In this example, extra-solar refers to planets without stars not just planets outside of our solar system. Those have yet to be found.
gloves - that's right. I said nothing to the contrary.
gasparri - why would anyone beat you over the head? I have the opposite view as to what you expressed. Time is entirely man made. It is not a thing at all other than a convenient method for us to organize and understand other things. Gravity, in what ever final form we may decide it is, is a real thing.
Currently, if gravity is 1 then the other forces are a power of 10 to the 25th to 10 to the 38th greater. That doesn't make sense.
