The Best Of Our Knowledge #1206

Oct 30, 2013

Earlier this year we got word from NASA that, after traveling through space for nearly 35 years, the probe Voyager 1 has left our solar system and headed off into, well...we really don't know do we.  However we are getting a better idea of what type of planets are systems are waiting beyond our solar system. 

Today on the Best Of Our Knowledge, our Astrobiology series returns with a look at the search for exo-planets...and perhaps the forms of life they may host.

We'll also spend an academic minute in the tropics here on Earth, and find out how climate change is affecting the rain forests.
