Imagine living in a world with three Suns, red jungles or an endless night. These ideas have moved from fiction to reality as we discover more and more fantastic planets in our galaxy.

So what do planets circling distant stars look like? Could there be life there? How do we know what they might be like?

What questions do YOU want our expert to answer?

Find out about exoplanets – planets that orbit around other stars, not the Sun – with astrophysicist Emily Brunsden.
