Exocast-37b: Live at TESScon, an intro to planetary protection, & the month in exoplanet news

Quizmaster Hugh takes to the conference hall at the 1st TESS Science Conference (TESSCon) to test the attendees’ exoplanet knowledge! Andrew compiles a (not very) top secret report-out on planetary protection. And Hannah covers this month’s news including the detection of an exoplanet magnetic field, new planets from TESS, a Kepler-load of 350 new candidates, as well as advances in exoplanet population statistics and atmospheric characterization. http://media.blubrry.com/exocast/p/www.exocast.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Exocast-37b_v1.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadSubscribe: Android |
