I was going to talk about some recent estimates from the Kepler data, but find myself short on time. So I am dumping a few awesome videos. First we have a 2-part series on the method used by the Kepler Telescope to discover new exoplanets. They are fantastic in quality and made by Paul A. Wilson, A Widely Unknown Exoplanet Astronomer, and has a wonderful blog I recently discovered.
Enjoy the videos, next time I hope to have that post on Kepler done. It will involve the Drake Equation, and what it means for the search for life. You may have also noticed, I added an Astronomy Picture of the Day gadget to the upper right, I hope you all enjoy those pictures as much as I do!
