Artifexian: Other Planetary Systems

Last week, Edgar showed us how to construct a classical planetary system. But are there other types of planetary system out there?

Of there are! The universe is vast, diverse, and wonderful! In fact, there are more planet-star configurations out there than are dreamt of in your philosophy, Horatio.

In this episode of the Artifexian worldbuilding show, Edgar talks us through some of the most interesting star systems discovered to date. This really is fascinating stuff.

Are you enjoying these videos? Perhaps you’re following along and making a star system of your own. Let us know in the comments below! Edgar loves feedback!

As always, we recommend you visit the Artifexian YouTube channel to review the entire series so far.

…SciFi Ideas out!

    I like Gliese. Not only did I visit it in my second Verdant novel, Verdant Pioneers, but my entries for Alien August are from there (what a coincidence!).

    Did all of you guys know that there are more stars in the entire universe than there are grains of sand on all of earth and that the number of planets outnumbers that of the stars?

    • Yes. It’s a famous quote by Carl Sagan. The figures hold up too.
