Watch Episode 10 of Explore Exoplanets: The Discoverers!

Have you ever wondered what it's like to discover a brand-new world? In the last few decades, we've found over 5,000 planets outside our solar system, called exoplanets—and there are likely millions, if not billions, more! Join Dr. Jessie Christiansen, Lead Scientist at the NASA Exoplanet Archive at Caltech IPAC as she interviews the brilliant minds behind the discovery of new planets in "Explore Exoplanets: The Discoverers." Hear about their eureka moments and their favorite fictional planets, which Jessie will match to their closest real-world counterparts in the NASA Exoplanet Archive. Come explore the cosmos, one exoplanet at a time!
