Astronomy Live: Life on Other Worlds

August 26, 2014

digital universe

The number of known planets around other stars increases every day.  As such, our understanding of life beyond Earth is constantly being revised.  In this program, Jackie Faherty and Carter Emmart will use the vast atlas of the Digital Universe to take a voyage through the nearby solar neighborhood and to explore exotic new worlds, their potential for life, and the strange but beautiful vistas one might see from the planets at the forefront of astronomical discoveries.

Support for Hayden Planetarium Programs is provided by the Schaffner Family.
