Weekly Space Hangout: The Geology of Exoplanets with Dr. Paul Byrne
September 14 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT
The first suspected exoplanet was identified back in 1988, and was then confirmed in 1992. Since then, the rate at which detection/confirmations have been made has been increasing. And JWST has already directly imaged its first exoplanet! What data are we able to gather from here on Earth? What are we able to learn about these planets from the data collected? How does exoplanet geology compare with our own geology here on Earth? Let’s find out as we welcome planetary geologist Dr. Paul Byrne, to the WSH.
