It's been a long strange journey for Nobel Prize winning astronomer Didier Queloz. In 1995, he and his team discovered the first "Exosolar Planet" i.e. an Earth-like planet orbiting a star. In 2019, they received the Nobel Prize. Now there are over 4,000 similar planets, and estimates put the projected number to be in the trillions! With the help of some incredible creative talent, Professor Queloz is a part of the groundbreaking Netflix documentary series "Alien Worlds" where they get to bring life to their best guesses as to what these planets might look like and who/what might inhabit them. Join Peter, Richard and Nobel Prize winning astronomer Didier Queloz as they discuss "What If we settled on an exoplanet?".
