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, Ph.D., as we explore how we find and study these planets that orbit other suns. Download the poster (PDF).
Tacoma Science Café is held on the second Tuesday of each month. Did you miss a café and want to hear the discussion? Most Science Cafés are recorded by KCTS 9 and are available for online viewing. Tacoma Science Cafés take place at The Swiss Pub and are presented in partnership with Pacific Science Center and KCTS 9.
