Jacob Bean, University of Chicago, "Towards the identification of Earth-like worlds with MAROON-X"
Astronomy colloquium: Sep 28 @ 3:30 PM, ERC 161
Exoplanet surveys have recently progressed to the point of discovering small, potentially terrestrial planets orbiting in circumstellar habitable zones. Assessing the true degree of habitability of these worlds requires gaining knowledge of both their bulk and atmospheric properties. In this talk I will present my group's work to make advances on these subjects.
