Is M51-ULS-1b the First Planet Seen in Another Galaxy? with Rosanne Di Stefano, Center for Astrophysics
Rosanne Di Stefano of the Center for Astrophysics (CfA) visits Astronomy News with The Cosmic Companion 9 November 2021.
This week on Astronomy News with The Cosmic Companion, we welcome Dr. Rosanne Di Stefano from the Center for Astrophysics to the show, talking about her work finding the first planet yet seen in another galaxy.
We also look in on the ailing Hubble Space Telescope, as that famed instrument unexpectedly shuts down. We're going to examine the first signs of water within a galaxy in the ancient Cosmos, and we will look up in the night sky as Uranus offers amateur astronomers a prime chance to view that world.
