Undiscovered Worlds

The Adler Planetarium's sky show 'Undiscovered Worlds' tells the tale surrounding the Universe's explosion of discovery.

What You Will Discover

Included With All Access Pass

Until very recently, the only planets known to us were the familiar worlds in orbit around our Sun. In the last two decades we have confirmed more than 1500 new planets, called exoplanets, orbiting other stars; thousands more are awaiting study. Undiscovered Worlds tells the tale surrounding this explosion of discovery and examines what will be required to determine which, if any, of these new exoplanets can support life.
