Wednesday, January 15, 2020 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm

Exoplanets remain one of the hottest areas of astronomical research.  We are long past “do they exist” and are now moving into categorizing the types of exoplanets as well as providing weather reports for many of them! The questions associated with astrobiology and the possible presence of life on these worlds is taking centre stage. This talk will briefly summarize exoplanetary history dating back to Canadian efforts in the late 1970s and will also update the latest results from TESS.

Talk starts at 7:30pm, socializing at 7:00pm.
