This week, we talk to Dr. Lauren Weiss, astronomer at the University of Hawaii. We will be talking about her work discovering the TOI-561 planetary system, and discussing extreme exoplanets!
But first, we head out to the TRAPPIST-1 solar system, where we find each of the seven worlds in that system are surprisingly alike. Next, we look at a new study finding that earlier reports of phosphine on Venus may have been in error. Then, we look at a new conceptual idea for a next-generation plasma engine that could bring spacecraft and people to Mars and beyond.
