The First Photo of a Planet Outside Our Solar System

What you are looking at is a photo of the first planet to be recognized outside of our own solar system.  The planet is the orange dot near the yellow sun looking star.  This photo was taken in 2008 and has been researched up until now.  If you think we are alone in this universe you are sadly mistaken.
