Pluto got downgraded from planethood, but gravitational forces around the solar system indicate there is at least one other large, unknown body spinning out in the black. How do we detect this mysterious object, out beyond what we can easily see? How do we find planets in other solar systems — or even other galaxies? Let's talk astronomy and get down to what it takes to find other habitable planets, because Earth can't be the only one ... statistically speaking.
