[I apologize for the audio trouble with the podcast.  The audio demons were busy! - Rich] Host: Fraser Cain ( )Special Guest: The first suspected exoplanet was identified back in 1988, and was then confirmed in 1992. Since then, the rate at which detection/confirmations have been made has been increasing. And JWST has already directly imaged its first exoplanet! What data are we able to gather from here on Earth? What are we able to learn about these planets from the data collected? How does exoplanet geology compare with our own geology here on Earth? Let's find out as we welcome...

Maanvinder Pilania - A Journey To TOI 849-b show art Maanvinder Pilania - A Journey To TOI 849-b

The 365 Days of Astronomy

Located around 730 light years away from Earth, TOI-849b was discovered in November 2020 by NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) using a method called Transit. In this method, TESS looked for a dip in the light coming from the stars. If a planet passes directly between the star and the observer’s line of sight, it blocks out a tiny portion of light coming from the star.   We've added a new way to donate to 365 Days of Astronomy to support editing, hosting, and production costs.  Just visit: and donate as much as you can!

The 365 Days of Astronomy

Climate change is on our mind these days with increasing wildfires, droughts and floods. What are the variables that play into a planet’s changing climate and what can this teach us about the search for habitable planets in the solar system and across the Milky Way?   We've added a new way to donate to 365 Days of Astronomy to support editing, hosting, and production costs.  Just visit: and donate as much as you can!

The 365 Days of Astronomy

Talking about the ring systems, the only astronomical body that comes up in the mind of people is the planet Saturn, which has a ring system which can be seen easily with the help of a telescope. But did you know that Saturn is not the only one that has these jewels? There is even a planet which has a ring system bigger than that of the Saturn! All of this is thanks to modern astronomy, which has been successful in finding such objects which have a ring system with the help of spacecrafts and telescopes.   We've added a new way to donate to 365 Days of Astronomy to support editing,...
