Jason Rowe and the Planet Bonanza

Last Wednesday, the Kepler team announced a huge news - the discovery of 715 new planets. These newly-verified worlds orbit 305 stars and reveal multiple-planet systems much like our own solar system. We are excited to interview Jason Rowe, Research Scientist at the SETI Institute and member of NASA's Kepler mission. Tune in to the Hangout On Air to hear Jason tell us more about the Kepler mission and how the newly discovered planets will impact the ongoing search for life beyond Earth.
