Definition Exoplanets or extrasolar planets are planets that orbits another stars outside of our solar system. The first detection of such a planet did not happen until 1988, and first confirmed detection until 1992. This discovery involved several terrestrial-mass planets orbiting pulsar PSR B1257+12.
