- Science Café
October 2012 in Tacoma
Twenty years ago, astronomers thought they knew what planetary systems were like. However, in the last two decades, the discovery of nearly 1,000 exoplanets have told us that we are only beginning to understand the many sizes, shapes, and kinds of worlds that exist in our galaxy. At the October Tacoma Science Café, join UW’s Tyler Robinson, PhD, as we explore how we find and study these planets that orbit other suns.
