What Is An Exoplanet? & Becoming An Astronomer – Lauren Biddle Interview Ep1

Astronomy School, Exoplanets and Jedis Oh My! In this interview we speak with new astronomer Lauren Biddle about her experience at the University of Arizona studying for, and earning, an impressive double major Bachelor's degree in Astronomy and Physics, time as a telescope operator there, her current position at the Gemini Observatory in Hawaii, methods to search for exoplanets, her path ahead as an Exoplaneteer Astronomer, Star Wars vs. Star Trek, inspiration from Carl Sagan and Neil deGrasse Tyson, the re-boot of COSMOS, and we ask for your questions for future episodes.

Did you know at least one Tatooine-like exoplanet has already been discovered? It should be clear we had a great time doing this interview and we hope you enjoy it too. As we say at the end, if you have questions about science, astronomy school, or astronomy, please leave a comment and we will try to answer them in future episodes.
