    “A compelling adventure full of surprising details that show why astronomy is so fascinating..

    “In this timely book by Lucas Ellerbroek, the characters who have participated in the discovery of these other worlds share their personal stories. Discoveries are made by individuals, thanks to their vision, enthusiasm and perseverance, and also through friendship, collaboration and competition. Planet Hunters is a lively fresco of that international endeavour. .

    “Planet Hunters by Lucas Ellerbroek provides dozens of delightful (and sometimes humorous) histories of individuals who thought and wrote about planets and life around other stars before the recent discoveries provided facts. It is both informative and a pleasure to read. I highly recommend it..
