Moray’s astronomy club SIGMA host a visit from Prof. Ken Rice of the Royal Observatory Edinburgh and welcome you to join them and hear about the remarkable speed of discovery of extrasolar planets, or exoplanets. Just over 20 years ago, we didn’t know of any planets outside our Solar System – and now there are almost 4000 known, with more discoveries continuing apace. How do we find them, what do we know about them – and when can we expect to detect an exoplanet that might have conditions suitable for life?
This free event is hosted in SIGMA’s YouTube channel.
If you enjoy the meeting and want to join SIGMA, you will be able to get their monthly newsletter and night skies guide.
