Storyboard Text

  • How many planets are there in the galaxy?
  • I don't know... Like 14 or something?
  • UM ACTUALLY ESTIMATES PLACE THE NUMBER BETWEEN 800 BILLION AND 3.2 TRILLION AND WE CAN DETECT A LOT OF THEM USING TRANSIT DATA AND THE DOPPLER METHOD
  • Dude... chill. Who even are you?
  • I'm sorry... I just really like astronomy man... I don't know what got into me.
  • Well that stuff about translate and Flopper sounds cool. What is it?
  • YOU MEAN TRANSIT AND DOPPLER YOU IGNORAMUS?!
  • Anyways, we can detect planets as they move in front of their star by measuring the star's brightness
  • And the Doppler inspired technique measures the wavelength of light from the star as it moves from its planet's attraction
  • I can't help it, astronomy gets me going
  • Okay that's nice but you seriously need to cool it with the bouncing around.
