Speaker: Nicole Arulanantham (Space Telescope Science Institute)

Newborn stars are surrounded by disks of gas and dust. Within these wide, thin disks, a system of planets can form. The development of material in these disks, building from dust grains to planets, is essentially the origin story for Earth and every other planet.

Dr. Arulanantham will detail how we use the James Webb Space Telescope to study the chemistry of these building blocks and explore how they evolve over time.

Recorded live on Tuesday, June 4, 2024.


The STScI Public Lecture Series offers talks on a diverse selection of cosmic topics, typically held the first Tuesday of every month. The 2024 Public Lecture Series is continuing an online-only format. This lecture will be presented with a livestream to YouTube, and questions can be asked in the YouTube chat. As usual, the recording will also be posted on our YouTube channel. We will, as necessary, adjust from the traditional first Tuesday at 8 PM schedule to accommodate our speakers.
