Exoplanets and the Search for Habitable Worlds

May 5, 2010

Sara Seager is the Ellen Swallow Richards Associate Professor of Planetary Science and Associate Professor of Physics at MIT.

For thousands of years people have wondered, “Are we alone?” With over 400 planets discovered to orbit nearby stars, the existence of “exoplanets” is firmly established. Professor Seager will present highlights of recent exoplanet discoveries and discuss when we might find another Earth and what kinds of signs of life we are looking for.
