Undiscovered Worlds


About the Show

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 discovered hundreds of new planets, called exoplanets, orbiting other stars. In two more decades they will number in the thousands. 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.
