ESOcast - A fantastic resource for education tells us about exoplanets discovery

HARPS-HD69830

ESOcast is one of the fantastic resources for classroom that are now available online.

Some off the podcasts that are presented are very usefull like "ESOcast 11: 32 New Exoplanets Found" that presents how exoplanets are being discovered at La Silla using the High Accuracy Radial Velocity Planet Searcher, better known as HARPS, the spectrograph for ESO’s 3.6-metre telescope.
The number of available casts is still small, but we hope them to grow quick in the future.
