Starts With A Bang Podcast #53: Exoplanets from Kepler to TESS and beyond

A fascinating podcast on the topic with NASA scientist Dr. Jessie Christiansen.


How many planets are out there in the Universe? How many stars have planets, and what kinds of planets do stars of various types have? How close are we to doing direct imaging, finding whether some of our Earth-like planets are potentially habitable or even inhabited? Are Super-Earths a real thing, or are all of the ones larger than our world more Neptune-like than we care to admit?

We’ve answered a whole slew of questions about exoplanets that we didn’t even know to ask a decade or two ago, and there’s so much more happening right now as well as on the horizon. Come get the scoop on the latest Starts With A Bang podcast, featuring the incredible Dr. Jessie Christiansen of NASA’s Exoplanet Science Institute!
