Caption: Extrasolar planet. Artwork of a cratered and barren extrasolar planet (right) near a globular star cluster (left). A band of stars forming a galactic plane is in the background behind the planet. A globular star cluster, a dense spherical collection of stars, can contain over a million stars within a volume only a few hundred light years across. Globular star clusters formed early in the history of the universe, and their stars are thought to be among the oldest known.
