When I was a child I tuned in to a beautiful fantasy

I'd look up to the sky at night And I'd ask myself could it be right Are there planets like ours around faraway stars Or are we all alone on our planet Earth home?

Slide5: 

Are we whirling around imperceptibly? Caught up in the dances of gravity? A random Galactic anomaly Nine planets around the Sun

Point their scopes to the sky with an eye to unraveling the mystery

Like a beacon of hope in your burnt umber sky …the rising of 51 Pegasi

Dancing almost imperceptibly. Backward and forward from gravity A companion of closest proximity. A planet around a star!!!

Slide12: 

At the edge of the Galaxy, clusters of stars Their members a billion years older than ours hold wobbles of planets around their pulsars!

They've had eons more time than we Is it possible, could it be? Am I watching you, watching me?
