Mar 2, 2017

IN this impromptu and unscripted episode, I talk about the recent announcement of the discovery of severn earth-like world orbiting a nearby class M star now named TRAPPIST-1 after the telescope used to make the initial discovery.  I look at how exoplanets are discovered, the specifics of this discovery, what we know and why it is important.  Also discussed are the ideas of scientific collaboration and the concept of universality.
