This year has been very promising for the search for life beyond Earth. 

Until last year, fewer than 5,000 exoplanets had been discovered.

This year, in-depth study of the exoplanets discovered has also begun.

This year, more than 200 new exoplanets have been discovered.

Planets where the possibility of life is greater are called "super-Earths" by astronomers. This year, many exoplanets have been searched for super-Earths.

It can be said that 2022 will be a year of great success in this direction. Many of the over 200 discovered celestial bodies are very suitable for James Webb Space Telescope observation.

At the beginning of the year, there were only around 5000 known celestial bodies in the catalog of celestial bodies that had been discovered since the search for the solar system began.

NASA tweeted that 4% of these celestial bodies are terrestrial planets like Earth, and that the new year will bring new celestial bodies.
