Artist Paint Worlds Never Seen Before

This illustration by space artist Lynette Cook titled "floaters" shows imaginary life forms resembling large gas bags riding on currents of air rather than currents of water residing on a Jupiter-style gas giant planet harboring life, but not on its gassy surface. Since astronomers detected the first planet outside our solar system in 1995, Cook has been illustrating what their instruments reveal about distant unseen worlds.

it's good to see that floaters means entirely something else outside of my house.
