Organization: Awesome Astronomy
Link : www.awesomeastronomy.com
Taking a look at how over the last 40 years we went from only knowing of the handful of planets in our solar system to knowing of around 5,000 planets littering the galaxy.
- How have we discovered new planets?
- How many are there?
- How many stars have planets around them?
- Are there star systems with multiple planets like our solar system?
- Do we see the diversity of large gassy, small rocky and ringed planets around other stars?
… And the big one:
- Are any of them habitable?
Bio: Awesome Astronomy explores the frontiers of science, space and our evolving understanding of the universe.
