Live Broadcast, Tuesday, Dec. 20th 12:00pm PST: Kepler Planet Discovery

Want more information about the recent discovery of Earth-sized planets by NASA’s Kepler Mission? I’ve gathered together a team of scientists and astronomy journalists to talk about the announcement. We’ll explain the discovery in detail, give you some context, and then answer questions from the viewers.

We’re doing this as a Google+ Hangout on Air, which is in a beta state right now, so there could be all kinds of technical issues, but we’ve tested this out and it’s really cool.

Our current team will be me (Fraser Cain, Publisher of Universe Today), Nancy Atkinson – Senior Editor of Universe Today, Bad Astronomer Phil Plait, the Planetary Society’s Emily Lakdawalla and MSNBC Science Editor Alan Boyle. I suspect we’ll have a few more joining us too.

I’ll post a link to the Hangout once we’ve gone live, just after Noon, so check back then.

If you want to get notified, head over to Google+ and circle me, Nancy, Phil, Emily or Alan and you’ll see the broadcast in your stream once we get started.

The broadcast is over. I’ll post the video once I get my hands on it.
