Sara Seager - EXPeditions

Sara Seager

Professor of Physics and Planetary Science, MIT

I’m an astrophysicist and professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

My research focuses on exoplanets, planets which orbit stars other than our sun. My quest is to find another Earth, a true ‘Earth twin’, and to search for signs of life on any kind of exoplanet by studying their atmospheres. I’ve played a leadership role on space missions, and I’m also working for new, more sophisticated ways to find planets.
