28: All Exoplanets Are Exciting

We're back for 2019! Welcome to another year of awesome astronomy. In this episode we chat about the Super Wolf Blood Moon (a.k.a. "January-lunar-eclipse-that-was-slightly-bigger-than-average") and the lunar meteorite impacts caught on video during the eclipse. Then Emily gets pretty excited about the First Light data from TESS, everyone's favourite exoplanet-hunting spacecraft — and describes the first three exoplanets found amongst the TESS data. Turns out, all exoplanets are indeed exciting.
