That’s right it is that time of year again where the Exocast team pit planet against planet in the Twitter poll show-down: ExoCup!

In this episode Andrew, Hugh, and Hannah look at the rundown of exoplanets that were mentioned the most in the past year of research publications and the top 23 join last years ExoCup2020 winner WD-1856b to fill out the first 24 exoplanets in Pots 1, 2, and 3. They then take a look at what is missing – what worlds did not get represented, what methods should we highlight, and what the we want to see in the Cup – to fill out the 8 remaining wildcard slots.

The line up of planets has been decided, but which will fight each other for the win? Well that is down to Hugh’s random selector which sets out Groups A – H for the round 1 battles. The team discuss what they think will happen (listen to previous shows you will know we always get it wrong) and select their winner for better or worse.
