Understanding Planetary Habitability using Exoplanet Atmospheres

April 4, 2023 Lectures
Speaker: Katherine Bennett (Johns Hopkins University) Recorded live on Tuesday, April 4, 2023.

Unveiling the Secret History of Dwarf Galaxies by Surveying their Pulsating Stars

April 5, 2023 Colloquia
Dwarf galaxies are the essential ingredients in the buildup of large complex galaxies. They are relatively simple systems; yet their observed properties are somewhat at odds with theoretical predictions...

Exploring Early Earth and Habitability Using Ancient DNA

April 7, 2023 Lectures
Life is a planetary phenomenon and it is tuned to the conditions found on our planet that enable its existence. What is tuned, specifically, is the chemistry that occurs within cells, and enzymes are what...

Exoplanetary Probes: Resonant Chains, Exomoons, and Tidal Dynamics

April 19, 2023 Colloquia
I will introduce the resonant chains: ~10 planetary systems with 2-body and 3-body resonances among the planets. Gas giants, sub-Neptunes, super-Earths, and terrestrials all belong to such chains. TRAPPIST-1...

Red Giant Chemistry: Interactions, Interiors, and Galactic Evolution

May 3, 2023 Colloquia
Red giants can be great tracers of galactic chemical evolution since they can be studied to large distances. However, the mixture of elements they were born with can be altered over the course of their...

Planetary Systems and the Origins of Life in the Era of JWST

May 16 through 19, 2023 Symposia
Building on the foundational work enabled by HST and Spitzer, one of JWST’s main scientific drivers is the study of the origins of life, from planetary formation and exoplanetary...
