Welcome to the latest episode of Astronomy News with The Cosmic Companion!This week, we look at a new method for determining whether or not planets orbiting other stars have atmospheres, we see how starquakes could help us determine the age of the Milky Way, and a new guide to atmospheres of exoplanets could assist in the search for life on other worlds.My apologies for the crackling noise - I was trying new equipment and couldn’t get it to work just perfectly, exactly right. :)
