Physics Colloquium: ‘From Protoplanetary Disks to Exoplanets: Planets from Infancy to Maturity’

November 5 @ 4:00 pm

Planet

Hannah Jang-Condell

University of Wyoming

Abstract:  Exoplanets have been discovered in orbits as close as 0.05 AU, and as distant as hundreds of AU.  Hence, exoplanets are a hot topic, and they are also pretty cool.  Because these systems are so different from our own Solar System, they challenge conventional ideas of how planets form.  I will discuss what we can learn about planet formation both by examining the distribution of mature exoplanets as well as by directly studying infant planets in protoplanetary disks.  I will also discuss ongoing projects using the University of Wyoming’s telescope facilities to observe and characterize exoplanets.
