Speakers: Prof. Didier Queloz

The discovery of exoplanets sparked a revolution in astronomy and captured our
imagination. Today, about 1000 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 of
Nature’s problem of making planets. This talk will present the main results of exoplanet
work, with the prospects for characterizing the structure and atmosphere of exoplanets.

Event type: Lecture/Talk
