Episode 22 — Exoplanets

exoplanet_100_thumb.jpgI’m sure we’ve all wondered from time to time whether or not there’s life elsewhere in the universe. Of course, if alien life exists, it’d likely need a planet to grow up on — so in this episode, we’re off to search for exoplanets, extra-solar planets!
