This article really seems redundant in view of the much larger article on extrasolar planet, and so I will plan to nominate it for deletion unless someone objects. Kevin Nelson (talk) 05:57, 23 April 2010 (UTC)

Some notability for the term can be established, as it has been mentioned in several scientific papers. Personally I would recommend a merge/redirect of the term into the extrasolar planet article.—RJH (talk) 21:10, 22 May 2010 (UTC)
I would suggest redirecting to astrobiology instead. Michaeltyrmarskell (talk) 11:48, 5 October 2010 (UTC)
I've moved all relevant information.
As previously mentioned, the notability of the term can be established, as it is now continually being mentioned in several scientific papers. It is a young field that is focused on Exoplanets, yet it is an integrated science that comprises Astrobiology, Astrophysics and Astronomy. It is a unique field that deserves further recognition. The universe is expanding. We need to expand our minds, too. Let us keep this wikipedia entry on Exoplanetology page and see where it takes us. Let's see how it inspires the next generation. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Metapsyche (talkcontribs) 15:18, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
