[SPOILER ALERT] Kepler 22b — the very real planet on which Raised By Wolves takes place — orbits just far away enough from its sun-star to potentially support human life. But could it, really? And should humanity be colonizing new planets after simply discarding the one it has inhabited up until this point? Host Holly Frey sits down with exoplanetary astrobiologist Sara Seager — a member of the Kepler team that discovered 22b — to reveal the science behind finding a possible back-up Earth, and consider the moral issues that come with mankind looking for life-sustaining planets after they’ve treated this one so carelessly. Plus, show creator Aaron Guzikowski weighs in on the possibilities of life beyond planet Earth, and how such speculation helped inspire the series.
