This week, we welcome Professor Eric Agol from the University of Washington to the show. He is an astrophysicist focused on the study of exoplanets, and we will be talking about his work uncovering conditions on the seven worlds of the TRAPPIST-1 system.
But first, we look at a study proposing a new way to find dark matter – one of the greatest mysteries in astrophysics. Next, we examine a possible new method for seeing long-elusive gravitational waves. Finally, we hear the story of a student astronomer who may have found a missing piece of the Cosmos.
