›Characterising exoplanets: detection, formation, interiors, atmospheres and habitability
Scientific discussion meeting organised by Professor Athena Coustenis, Professor Steve Miller, Professor Peter Read and Professor Jonathan Tennyson FRS
This meeting aims to set the agenda for the next decade in this rapidly expanding field of extra-solar planet science. Some 800 planets orbiting stars outside of our solar system have now been detected, with varying masses and orbital parameters. The challenge now is to move from detection to understanding these planets as bodies in their own right.
Biographies of speakers will appear below soon and you can download the programme. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the event and papers published in a future issue of Philosophical Transactions A.
