Notre Dame physics professor Justin Crepp discusses expolanets and how to find them. There are 100 billion stars in the Milky Way galaxy. Do these stars have orbiting planets? If so, are they similar to the Earth? Do they have life? In this talk, Prof. Crepp will address these questions by explaining how astrophysicists detect and study planets located outside the solar system.
