Speaker:

Prof. Didier Queloz, University of Cambridge

Abstract:

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.
