Previous Episode: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kL81uuYW9BY&t=40s The Kepler mission has determined that terrestrial planets - that is, rocky planets like our Earth are extremely common, and may orbit most stars in the Milky Way. But these planets are extremely difficult to directly image because they’re dense and small. Our Sun is about ten billion times brighter than Earth. Train a distant telescope on us, and it will be overwhelmed by the Sun’s rays. So how can we find terrestrial planets around stars light years away?
