Astronomers now know of thousands of worlds orbiting other stars in our galaxy. These so-called “exoplanets” are surprisingly diverse, spanning giant planets with super-heated atmospheres to small rocky worlds with rock vapor in their air. These findings are all leading up to the discovery everyone is waiting for – another planet like our own! Meet an Astronomer welcomes guest astronomer, Dr. Tyler Robinson, Assistant Professor at Northern Arizona University.
