Streaming | Meet an Astronomer | Joe Llama | Finding Earth 2.0
April 14 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
We are entering a new era of exoplanet astronomy and are closer than ever to discovering a planet like Earth orbiting in the habitable zone of a star like our Sun. Lowell astronomer Dr. Joe Llama is using the Lowell Discovery Telescope and the recently commissioned EXtreme PREcision Spectrograph (EXPRES) from Yale University to search for Earth 2.0. He will talk about how we find exoplanets, highlight some of the most recent discoveries, and tell us what is in store for this exciting field of astronomy in the next few years.
