Hearing: Exoplanet Discoveries: Have We Found Other Earths?
The purpose of the hearing is to review the recent discovery of three super-Earth sized planets by the NASA’s Kepler space telescope. The hearing will also assess the state of exoplanet surveying, characterization, and research; NASA’s Exoplanet Exploration Program; National Science Foundation’s Division of Astronomical Science; as well as coordination within the government and with external partners. NASA and NSF both contribute to the search for exoplanets.
