Type: Online Virtual Talk, Demo, Tour, or Performance
The Sun isn't the only star to have planets orbiting it -- thousands of planets in other solar systems have been found, most of them in the last 10 years. There is a huge diversity in exoplanet types not seen in our own Solar System, like hot Jupiters and super Earths, and we've found a few exoplanets that would probably be habitable! In this talk you'll learn about how these exoplanets are formed, how scientists have discovered them, and why we shouldn't plan to visit one anytime soon.
