Slooh: Earth’s Newest Neighbor


Join Slooh to explore Proxima-b a brand new, Earth-like planet, within driving distance of our own planet.

During the broadcast host Eric Edelman was joined by Michael Endl from the McDonald Observatory at the University of Texas at Austin, who worked on the ESO team that made the discovery. They’ll discuss how the team managed to find an Earth-like planet orbiting the star Proxima Centauri. They’ll also explore what the team has learned so far about this mysterious “nearby” planet, and what they hope to learn in the future.
