Organization: Astronomy Cast – http://www.astronomycast.com

Description: We are now learning that the vast majority of potentially habitable worlds out there are actually icy moons like Europa and Enceladus. Good news! There are hundreds if not thousands of times more of them than worlds like Earth. Bad news? They’re locked in ice. What have we learned about the water worlds and their potential for habitability?

Bio: Fraser Cain is the publisher of Universe Today and Dr. Pamela Gay is a Director of Technology & Citizen Science, CosmoQuest, St. Louis. They team up to do Astronomy Cast, a weekly facts-based journey through the cosmos.
