On 8 April 2017 Science Alert reported:
Darwin mechanic and amateur astronomer Andrew Grey this week helped to discover a new exoplanet system with at least four orbiting planets. The discovery was a highlight moment of this week's three-evening special ABC [Australian Broadcasting Corporation] Stargazing Live, featuring British physicist Brian Cox ... others. Viewers were encouraged to join in the search for exoplanets -- planets orbiting distant stars -- using the Exoplanet Explorers website. After a quick tutorial they were then asked to trawl through data on thousands of stars recently observed with NASA's Kepler Space Telescope. Grey checked out more than 1,000 stars on the website before discovering the characteristic dips in brightness of the star in the data that signify an exoplanet.
