National Geographic on strange planets

National Geographic’s high-definition channel is showing a program on strange and alien worlds:

  • the oldest planet, PSR B1620 26 b, 12.7 billion years old
  • ocean planets with ice-7 deep below (a possible example is Gliese 581 d)
  • giant planets, etc.

The program also discusses the possibilities for life on other worlds.
