Guelph Physics Live Stream : An Evening of Exoplanets
Date and Time
Join us on Tuesday Jan 26th at 7:00 pm EST for a discussion on space exploration.
In conjunction with our friends from the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada – Montreal Centre (RASC-MTL) and the Institute for Research on Exoplanets (IREX) we’ll be joined by some of Canada’s top researchers probing the depths of space focusing on planets external to our solar system, or as they’re known to scientists, exoplanets.
Planned topics include:
- the James Webb Space Telescope – an orbiting infrared observatory designed to compliment and extend the discoveries of the Hubble Space Telescope to be launched later this year.
- the Ariel Mission – scheduled to launch in 2029, the Atmospheric Remote-sensing Infrared Exoplanet Large-survey Mission is the first mission dedicated to measuring the chemical composition and thermal structures of hundreds of transiting exoplanets.
- the Gaia Mission – currently in space, the Gaia mission seeks to chart a three-dimensional map of our Galaxy, the Milky Way, in the process revealing its composition, formation and evolution.
As always, we will have a live Q&A where your questions about space exploration, space science, and the cosmos in general will be answered!
Please join us for this unique opportunity to join in with some of Canada’s top space scientists!
