Applicant -- Planets beyond Solar system

Wednesday, March 14, 2018

Searching for exoplanets, especially the ones in the habitable zone, is a long quest of observational astronomy. Since the discovery of the 1st exoplanet -- 51 Pegasi b, there have been more than 3000 exoplanets charted to-date. In this talk I will give an overview of exoplanets discovered by different methods, the lessons we learned from them (especially on the planet formation and evolution), and the observation needs in the future.
