Astro Seminar

A planet not our own

Speaker: Elizabeth Tasker (JAXA)
Date: Wednesday 10 February 2021
Time: 10:00
Venue: Zoom

We thought we understood the planets of our Solar System until we discovered new worlds beyond our own Sun. Planets the size of Jupiter with orbits completed in Earth days, planets with two suns in the sky and others with seas of tar or endless oceans. How did these worlds form, how did we find them and could any of these discoveries be at all like our own Earth?
