Join me, Senior Editor EmilyLakdawalla, Planetary Radio host Mat Kaplan, and special guest Dr. Meg Schwamb of Yale University to talk about the latest news from the American Astronomical Society's 2013 meeting in Long Beach, California. Dr. Schwam will help us understand the latest announcements about exoplanets, and her own research of outer solar system bodies.
I will embed the video here starting just a few minutes before noon PST on Thursday. If you don't see the video here, or the video isn't loading correctly, please try reloading the page.

This artist's illustration gives an impression of how common planets are around the stars in the Milky Way. The planets, their orbits, and their host stars are all vastly magnified compared to their real separations.
Our LightSail test mission was successfully completed and our Kickstarter campaign ended June 26th, raising $1.24 million dollars for LightSail's 2016 solar sailing mission! Miss the Kickstarter campaign, but still want to donate? You can!
