Exoplanets and the search for extraterrestrial life
  Astronomy and astrophysics

Friday 07 April 2017
from 10:30 to 11:30
at FB54
Speaker : Ignas Snellen (Leiden University)
Abstract : In this talk I will review the state-of-the-art work on exoplanet characterization, mainly focusing on ground-based techniques. I will discuss what we do now, can do in the near future with instruments like CRIRES+, and later with the European Extremely Large Telescope. Detailed knowledge of the chemical composition and climate of Earth-like planets such as Proxima b and the seven TRAPPIST sisters are within reach.
