This free AAVSO webinar will first feature Dr. Adam Burgasser (UCalifornia, San Diego), "Stormy with a Chance of Iron: Weather and the Dynamic Atmospheres of Cold Stars and Brown Dwarfs."
Secondly, Dr. Boris Gänsicke (UWarwick), "The end of the worlds," in which he will discuss the ultimate fate of planetary systems: what happens once the planet host stars run out of fuel, including planets or their remains surviving the metamorphosis of their host stars. He will also review how we identify such evolved planetary systems, and the detections of giant planets on close orbits around white dwarfs.
