"The Exoplanet and the search for life"
ETH astrophysicist Kevin Schawinski speaks on Swiss Radio SRF about exoplanets and the search for biology outside our solar system.
"A lump of rock is currently attracting the attention of us human beings — a newly discovered planet. This exoplanet is located some 40 light years away from Earth and orbits around a dwarf star known as LHS 1140. Zurich astrophysicist Kevin Schawinski explains why this is exciting."
