Exploring exoplanets
College of Staten Island of CUNY
ABSTRACT: Exoplanets are everywhere in the Milky Way Galaxy, and likely the Universe, according to the most recent results from NASA's Kepler mission and other surveys. But how close are we to finding a habitable planet like Earth or to answering the eternal question, Are we alone in the Universe? I will explain how we came to understand the ubiquity of exoplanets, describe the complexity of the current census, and foreshadow what discoveries are likely to lie ahead in the coming years.
