The discovery of exoplanets sparked a revolution in astronomy and captured our imagination. Today, about 1,000 such objects have been found. We have learned that planets are common, and that their properties are much more diverse than originally predicted. Their nature remains mysterious. Our solar system is just one solution to nature’s problem of making planets. This talk will present the main results of exoplanet work.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to BA flight disruption our speaker is no longer able to make it. Fortunately, we have found a replacement speaker. Prof Peter Kalmus from Queen Mary University London will be giving a talk entitled 'The CERN Antiproton-Proton Collider Project'.
