Dr. Kevin Schlaufman: Exoplanets 

This is an extraordinary time in human history. While it has been only twenty years since astronomers first discovered planets outside of our solar system, we are already aware of several planets that could have liquid water on their surfaces. In just ten years, we will have the technological ability to search for signs of life, like oxygen and methane, in the atmospheres of a few select exoplanets. Dr. Schlaufman tells the story of exoplanets to date, and outline the progress we will soon see in the search for life elsewhere in our Galaxy.
