Saturday Morning Physics | The Formation of Planetary Systems

Fred C. Adams, Ta-You Wu Collegiate Professor of Physics (U-M Physics)
Saturday, December 2, 2023
10:30-11:30 AM
170 & 182 Weiser Hall Map
The past two decades have witnessed the discovery of over 5,000 planets that orbit stars other than our Sun. This talk will provide an overview of these alien worlds and the types of planetary systems that they live within. Such planetary systems display an enormous variety, but they also have a number of universal features. Although the mechanisms that form these planets remain under study, this talk will present a progress report on our current understanding of the physical processes involved.

The event will be in-person and also live-streamed on YouTube:
