Enjoying the recording of your interview with Natalie Batalha - some great a-ha moments and awe-ful moments of inspiration. But I also have a question about something she said that didn't sound right to me: In talking about the method of searching for dimming of light that indicates a possible exoplanet, she said these dimmings would only happen once a year. That puzzled me because our "year" relates to the orbit of earth around our sun. Wouldn't those exoplanets orbit their "suns" in differing cycles totally independent of our cycles?
