The Sun is a star like all others, so it is natural to wonder if some planets move around other stars, like they do around the Sun. Moreover, we can wonder whether on some of these "exoplanets" (if they do exist), a form of life could appear.

We live in an amazing world where we can start to provide scientific answers to these questions.

In this chapter, we take stock of these questions, from the recent discoveries to possible future discoveries of the years 2020-2030.
