IoP/OU Open Lecture Series: Prof Carole Haswell "Exoplanets and Space Telescopes"

Dates
Tuesday, October 8, 2019 - 19:30
Location
Berrill Theatre, Walton Hall, Milton Keynes

We live in exciting times: we have recently learned that our Galaxy contains more than one planet for each human being on planet Earth! I will show how we are able to say this, despite the fact that we have only directly imaged a handful of exoplanets. I will discuss some recent highlights and preview the scientific breakthroughs we anticipate from forthcoming space missions.  These are, with expected launch dates: the CHEOPS mission (2019), the James Web Space Telescope (2021) and ESA's PLATO and ARIEL (2027).

Tuesday 8th October 2019, Berrill Lecture Theatre, The Open University, Milton Keyens, MK7 6AA
