SMP 4/9/05 | The Quest to Discover New “Earths” | Speaker: John Monnier

Saturday, April 9, 2005
12:00 AM
170 & 182 Dennison Building

Speaker: Professor John Monnier (U-M Astronomy)

The discoveries of giant planets around other stars have changed the way we think of our solar system -- we no longer know what a "normal" planetary system is anymore. Astronomers are now debuting new observing methods to find out more. But with the new excitement comes a growing impatience: Where are all the Earth-like planets? How are we going to find them?

Detailed Information
