Question:
Dear Newton,

Do you know of any other planets other than the ones the general public knows about?


Replies:
There were a few planets discovered very recently around some very peculiar stars that emit enormous quantities of radio waves.

But those are very far away, and probably not very pleasant planets either. No new planets have been discovered in our own solar system since Pluto was found early in this century.
