BTDS Podcast Episode 3: "Stargazer"

This is a double-wide episode with two NASA astrobiologists! Kid host Aaron and I speak with Dr. Nader Haghighipour about his work finding extrasolar planets (including Gliese 581 c!) and we speak with Dr. Vikki Meadows about how we might detect signs of life on extrasolar planets. Featuring a new song, "Stargazer"!
