Another Pale Blue Dot: The SETI Institute’s Search for Exoplanets

In only two decades, we‘ve gone from the mere speculation about planets beyond our solar system (exoplanets) to being able to observe them through a variety of methods. Dr. Franck Marchis, Planetary Astronomer and chair of the exoplanet group at the SETI Institute will discuss new and sophisticated projects which aim to image directly those exoplanets. Future instruments could soon deliver an image of a cousin of Earth, or another Pale Blue Dot, a planet similar to our own.

Speaker: Dr. Frank Marchis, SETI
