Science fiction portrays our Milky Way Galaxy as filled with habitable planets populated by advanced civilizations. Back in our real universe, not a microbe has been found by scientists observing exoplanets—Earth-like planets orbiting other stars.
In this podcast, join Geoff Marcy, Professor of Astronomy at University of California, Berkeley, as he discusses the Earth-like worlds discovered by NASA’s new space-born Kepler telescope.
The “Frontiers in Astrophysics” event took place at the Museum on March 11th, 2013. Dr. Marcy was introduced by Associate Curator in the Museum’s Department of Astrophysics, Rebecca Oppenheimer.
