Exclamation Interview: IceInSpace interviews planet hunter Simon O'Toole

It's been a long time since the last interview on IceInSpace, but I'll try and find time to do them more regularly in 2009. This interview is with Simon O'Toole, extra-solar planet hunter working at the Anglo-Australian Telescope, and is one of those at the forefront of this new research and is part of a team who has discovered more than 30 planets orbiting other stars.

I talk to Simon about his discoveries, the methods used to find extra-solar planets, and what the future holds in this exciting field. Will we find another Earth?

Read the interview with Simon O'Toole.

Cheers

Nice interview Mike
Did you ask him to elaborate on this?
This of course means that I have a wealth of fascinating but ultimately useless knowledge!

I'm glad you've enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed putting it together.

I thoroughly enjoyed Simon's company at IISAC2008. He's a really nice guy and it was very interesting talking about the real work astronomers do. And of course the soccer. And politics.
