Sounding Stars and the search for other worlds in our Galaxy

We have now discovered thousands of planets orbiting other stars in our Galaxy. Stellar systems, like our own solar system, are very common. In this talk Professor Chaplin will discuss how we are using NASA satellites and ground-based telescopes to study these newly discovered planets, starting with their host stars, and the prospects for finding signatures of life on the planets.

Speaker – Professor William Chaplin, Professor of Astrophysics at the University of Birmingham and a leader of the NASA Kepler Mission
