Professor Horace Smith presents: The Multitude of Planets Beyond Our Solar System  (Public Programs)

Professor Smith describes: It was not long ago that we knew only of the planets within our own solar system. Today the study of exoplanets, planets around suns beyond our own, is one of the most rapidly advancing in all of astronomy. As new and improved techniques for finding these worlds come into operation, scarcely a day passes without the discovery of some new and strange planet around a distant star. Are some of these other planets similar to our own Earth? How can we search for life on planets light years away?
