A planet outside our solar system is called an exoplanet, with the first confirmed observation of such an object in 1992. The discovery of these objects in far away solar systems has intensified interest in the search for extraterrestrial life with special interest in planets that orbit in a star’s habitable zone. Scientists and PhD students alike are leading the charge in this exciting, and young – relatively speaking – field of research.
We’re diving into exoplanets in our final November Science podcast.
