Lecture | November 18 | 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. | 100 Genetics & Plant Biology Building
Courtney Dressing, Astronomy Department
Several decades of ground- and space-based investigations have revealed that our galaxy is teeming with planetary systems and that Earth-sized planets are common. Dr. Dressing will review our understanding of small planets and then chart a path towards the detection and characterization of habitable planets orbiting nearby stars.
