Examples of planets in a Sentence

  1. Tim Pyle:

    My reaction to the TRAPPIST system was very emotional, it got me so excited thinking about what it looked like on these planets, everything we'd hoped for when we had science fiction visions of other worlds. Working on Robert Hurt, I've been able to illustrate so many different kinds of astronomical objects. It felt like we kept opening these new doors to what kinds of discoveries Robert Hurt could make. And at times, we were the first to illustrate these unanticipated findings.

  2. David Bennett:

    The lack of such planets in our own solar system is more likely to be due to random chance or an accident.

  3. Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire:

    It is not known precisely where angels dwell-whether in the air, the void, or the planets. It has not been God's pleasure that we should be informed of their abode.

  4. Zachory Berta-Thompson:

    We think it’s the first opportunity we have to point our telescopes at a rocky exoplanet and get that kind of detail, to be able to measure the color of its sunset, or the speed of its winds, and really learn how rocky planets work out there in the universe, those will be exciting observations to make.

  5. Richard Teague:

    We do not really know the details of how we go from small grains of dust to massive gas giants, if we're able to catch them at their birth we can see where they form in the disk. This will allow us to better understand how many planets we would expect in a typical system. We can also examine what the chemical and molecular content of the gas is like around the protoplanet and build a picture of what atmospheres are like on very young planets. These results will provide essential evidence for theoreticians trying to fill in the gaps about how planets grow.
