Jacob Bean's citation: By studying the atmospheres of planets beyond our solar system, also known as "exoplanets," Bean's goal is to gain a deeper understanding of planetary formation, physics, chemistry and ultimately, habitability. Using ground and space-based telescopes, Bean is interested in detecting and characterizing these worlds and eventually identifying other Earth-like planets.
