Science Under the Dome is back for the Winter 2017 semester! We have monthly talks lined up for January - April.
Join us Thursday, February 16, 2017 at 7:00pm for
Peering Into the Atmospheres of Strange New Worlds
Prof. Emily Rauscher, Department of Astronomy, University of Michigan
In the last 20 years over 3,000 planets have been discovered orbiting around nearby stars and most of these exoplanets are completely unlike any planet in our solar system. Astronomers have developed incredible methods that allow us measure the atmospheric properties of some planets, giving us clues as to the physical conditions on these exotic worlds. I will discuss the current status and future of these grand endeavors.
This is a free event, but, attendance is limited - please be sure to RSVP!
