The Exoplanet Data Explorer is an interactive table and plotter for exploring and displaying data from the Exoplanet Orbit Database. The database is a regularly-updated compilation of spectroscopic orbital parameters of exoplanets orbiting normal stars from the peer-reviewed literature.

In addition to the data plotter, provides a springboard for learners with little background in astronomy to enter the search for planets outside of our solar system. Don't miss the links to an "Exoplanet Encyclopedia", the Kepler Mission, timely publications and research on the topic, and websites for amateur planet hunters.
