Exoplanets Websites

Following is a small collection of exoplanets websites that may be useful to you. It is not exhaustive, but this table is a good place to start. Each website has its own characteristics and intended audience. Try to avoid automated scraper sites that simply collate articles from the web. Finally, remember also to read articles or information, even from a reputable source, with a continuously questioning posture, and demand that everything quoted as fact is sourced and not just pulled out of nowhere. And then scrutinize the sources!
