Did you know that planets outnumber stars in the galaxy? NASA's recently-retired Kepler spacecraft taught us that. With over 2,500 planet discoveries and another 2,000 awaiting confirmation, Kepler revealed a staggering diversity of worlds, turning sci-fi fantasy into scientific reality.

In this illustrated, nontechnical presentation, astrophysicist and planet hunter Natalie Batalha, the former project scientist for NASA's Kepler mission, will give an overview of Kepler’s remarkable scientific legacy. She will highlight some of the key discoveries and share a preview of exciting follow-up missions in progress and on the drawing board.

This lecture is free, but tickets are required. Learn more: https://s.si.edu/2EUWXoP

The John N. Bahcall Lecture is sponsored by the Space Telescope Science Institute and the Hubble Space Telescope Project/NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.
