Finding the Next Earth
Join astronomers as they enter in a race to find a planet capable of sustaining life, a world like ours. See the launch of France’s CoRot and America’s Kepler missions, and the smoking hot worlds they discover. See a controversial discovery of a planet where life could exist in a strange twilight zone – that is, if the planet really exists. Astronomers are now building the radical James Webb Space Telescope, a spacecraft that can reveal whether life as we know it actually exists on a planet.
