A Planet Not Our Own

January 1, 1970

GUEST SPEAKER: Elizabeth Tasker, Associate Professor, Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), Institute of Space and Astronautical Sciences (ISAS)
VIRTUAL ASTRONOMY TALK: We thought we understood the planets of our solar system until we discovered new worlds beyond our own Sun – planets the size of Jupiter with orbits completed in an Earth day, planets with two suns in the sky, and others with seas of tar or endless oceans. How did these worlds form, how did we find them, and could any of these discoveries be at all like our own Earth? Join us as Dr. Tasker helps us get acquainted with this fascinating field of science.
