Sprecher: Franck Selsis, LAB (Laboratoire d'Astrophysique de Bordeaux, Université de Bordeaux)
Veranstaltung: Dienstag, den 24. Mai 2022 10:00 - 13:00
Ort: Belval Campus, MSA Room 3.370

The lecture will be dedicated to exoplanets, the methods to detect and characterize them and their atmosphere. We will present their population and what it tells us on planet formation and how generic/specific the solar system is. A second part will focus on terrestrial exoplanets, the expected diversity of their climate and surface conditions. We will question how properties of the host star the orbit, rotation, size and composition of the planet may influence the habitability. In a last part we will address the possibility to remotely search for signs of life on exoplanets by analyzing their atmospheric content.

The course is completed in two days, on Monday 23rd it is about "Exoplanets" and on Tuesday 24th it is about "The diversity of habitable worlds" and "Can we search for life on exoplanets".
