in just the last few years, thousands of planets and potential solar
systems outside our own have been discovered. With quickly advancing
technology, scientists will soon be able to analyze exoplanetary
atmospheres for signs of life. As citizens of Earth, how will these
discoveries affect our view of our place in the Universe, and the
significance of life?
