Investigating the atmospheres of alien worlds
Thursday, 13th May 2021 (19:45 - 21:00)
Venue: Virtual Meeting
It has now been over 25 years since the discovery of the first exoplanet around a Sun-like star. Since then, thousands of exoplanets have been discovered, most in systems that do not resemble our own Solar System. What is more, we have been able to study the atmospheres of some of these worlds.
In this talk, I will discuss how we can study exoplanet atmospheres and what we have learned so far.
