Known planets

From today’s Guardian: Illustration by Randall Munroe of all 786 planets known to science as of June 2012. The size of most planets outside our solar system is unknown, so the graph of those planets is based on relative mass.

“Every one of the 786 identified planets, illustrated to scale by Randall Munroe, author of award-winning webcomic XKCD.” From Guardian, June 21, 2012. Click to enlarge.
