NASA Goddard's Marc Kuchner talks about alien planets on public TV

You may have heard the big exoplanet news today:

NASA’s Kepler mission has discovered the first Earth-size planets orbiting a sun-like star outside our solar system. The planets, called Kepler-20e and Kepler-20f, are too close to their star to be in the so-called habitable zone where liquid water could exist on a planet’s surface, but they are the smallest exoplanets ever confirmed around a star like our sun.

In the general spirit of the day, here is some more planet talk — from NASA astrophysicist Marc Kuchner, who recently appeared on Maryland Public Television to discuss the latest research on planets around other stars.
