Podcast: Exoplanets Revealed with Emily Rice
by AMNH on
Planets orbiting stars other than the Sun—called exoplanets—were first discovered in 1995. Since then, astronomers have pushed the limits of technology to produce images of exoplanets. In this podcast, Emily Rice, a research scientist in the Museum’s Department of Astrophysics, leads a tour of hundreds of extrasolar planets.
Dr. Rice’s talk was recorded at the Hayden Planetarium Space Theater on April 26, 2011.
