The Search for Exoplanets: Earth Like Planets and Alien Worlds

Orbiting distant stars, myriad alien worlds have recently been discovered. Some of these exoplanets fall in the “goldilocks” or habitable zone. Some appear to have oceans of liquid water and favorable conditions for life. Could Earth 2.0 be orbiting a nearby star? Come learn about the hunt for planets around distant stars with Subaru Telescope astronomer Julien Lozi. Hear about the exoplanet revolution and what this means for the field of astronomy and how Hawaiʻi may be the perfect place for future discoveries.
