Franck Marchis of the SETI institute will share will discuss whether the search for a sister Earth is science or fiction. Kyle Story will talk about his work on the South Pole telescope and share a few stories from his trips to the South Pole!  And finally, SLAC scientist and Stanford Professor Aaron Roodman will share details from his hunt for dark energy. We’ll also feature Astronomy in the News, with explanations of NASA’s most recent exoplanet announcement and the upcoming solar eclipse!
