Presenter: Dr. Alex Storrs, Towson University.
Abstract: We now know about more planets outside our solar system, than in it. Surveys of nearby stars extrapolate to the exciting result that there are probably about as many Earth sized planets in our Milky Way galaxy, as there are stars. We will look at a few of the nearer ones, including one around the nearest star to the Sun, Proxima Centauri.
