LIVE chat with Lucianne Walkowicz on extrasolar planets and how that affects life on Earth, September 15, 1-3pm EDT.
Join us for a LIVE conversation with astronomer, extrasolar planet hunter, and TED speaker Lucianne Walkowicz.
The conversation will open at 1PM EDT, September 15th, 2011.
We'll start with the question:
"How does the exploration of our universe, in particular the search for planets like our own, inform our everyday existence here on Earth?"
Closing Statement from Lucianne Walkowicz
Thanks so much for joining me today, everyone! As I've said, learning about the universe beyond Earth really makes me appreciate the world we have here, right under our own feet. I think astronomy has the potential to unite us all, as we're all under the same sky and sharing in these discoveries. I encourage you all to keep listening for news both from Kepler and other teams-- the near future promises even more exciting finds, so stay tuned!
