The science of discovering exoplanets is amazing.  I'd quite fancy the job title of "Exobiologist" if I was going through University now, that's got to be a fun occupation.

In my view, one of the most amazing discoveries we've made in astronomy.

Exobiologist - might be studying something that does not exist at all!  I'm really hoping that someone will discover life elsewhere - that way we'll know for sure. There's one thing for sure we'll never know and that's that there's no other life at all.
