The Hubble telescope has helped discover over 4100 exoplanets in recent years, some of those being categorized as “Super Earths”. But what exactly does that mean? What makes them so “Super”? Are they conducive to the formation of intelligent life? And what will new “super telescopes”, like the James Webb telescope launching in 2021, further discover about “Super Earths’ and their potential to one day be habitable…maybe even for us? Join Peter, Richard and astronomer Dr. Jack Madden from Cornell University as they discuss “What If you lived on a Super Earth?”
Join hosts Peter Schmiedchen and Richard Garner with some of the world’s top thinkers in science, astronomy, technology, academia and futurism to ponder some of your most popular What If videos.
