SMP 3/7/09 | Building Planets: When and How? | Speaker: Nuria Calvet

Saturday, March 7, 2009
12:00 AM
170 & 182 Dennison Building

Speaker: Professor Nuria Calvet (U-M Astronomy)

Over the past five years, the Spitzer Space telescope has made it possible to conduct large surveys at sensitivities and wavelengths that were formerly unattainable from the ground. These surveys have given us unprecedented information on where stars form, what is the nature of their surrounding disks, and how and when planets begin to form on those disks. We will review this information in this talk.

Detailed Information
All talks are free and refreshments will be served. Visitor parking for the seminars (Central Campus) is across the street from the Dennison Building in the U-M Church Street structure. There is a $2.00 parking charge implemented by U-M Parking Services.
