About this show

Through the discovery of exoplanets – the hundreds of planets that have been found orbiting stars beyond the Sun – we have learned that our solar system is not alone in the universe and have had to redefine our understanding of planets and solar systems. With rapidly improving technology and recent endeavors like the Kepler Telescope, the discovery of exoplanets represents one step closer to the possibility of finding an Earth-like world. How will this change how we view our place in the universe?
