Discover Exoplanets: The Search for Alien Worlds

Discover Exoplanets: The Search for Alien Worlds, a free NASA exhibit, will be at the C.H. Booth Library March 2024 – May 2024. The national traveling exhibition explores space and astronomy, covering topics such as the search for habitable worlds beyond our Solar System, how NASA scientists are searching for these worlds, and how they may be like our own. Discover Exoplanets is made possible through NASA’s Universe of Learning.
