Undiscovered Worlds: The Search Beyond Our Sun

  • September 1, 2017 - September 30, 2017
  • 4:00pm - 4:45pm
Thousands of planets—exoplanets—found orbiting other stars show that our solar system is not alone in the universe and that we must improve our understanding of planets and solar systems. As astronomers use the Kepler Telescope and rapidly improving technology, the discovery of exoplanets puts us one step closer to the possibility of finding an Earth-like world. How will this change how we view our place in the universe? Produced by Boston’s Museum of Science.
