The Kepler telescope has discovered 219 new planets - among them 10 which could possibly have the same potential as earth to support life. The latest research has been released by NASA and point to 10 exoplanets which are in the so called goldilocks zone. Dr Brad Tucker who's an astronomer at the Australian National University and is on his way to the US to work with NASA on the discovery talks to Jesse about the significance of the discovery and much closer we are to finding life on other planets.

3:10 Outwitting the back-pain industry

Treating back pain is a multi-billion dollar industry. 

Journalist Cathryn Ramin suffered from back pain for years and spent a small fortune of her own looking for relief. She used her reporting background and spent years looking at the back pain industry which she says is rife with false promises and dead ends that can make pain worse not better.

She chronicles what she discovered during her investigation  in her book, Crooked: Outwitting the Back Pain Industry and Getting on the Road to Recovery
