Dimitar Sasselov: How We Found Hundreds of Earth-Like Planets | TED2010

Filmed and Posted July 2010 on TED
Astronomer Dimitar Sasselov and his colleagues search for Earth-like planets that may, someday, help us answer centuries-old questions about the origin and existence of biological life elsewhere (and on Earth). How many such planets have they found already? Several hundreds.
