Frontiers Lecture: Earth the Transiting Exoplanet
For the past several decades, astronomers have been discovering planets around other stars. There are more than 4,400 of such confirmed exoplanets and thousands more candidate exoplanets. More than 70% of worlds beyond Earth were discovered through the transit method, by observing whether the light of a star dips as a planet passes in front.
Join Museum astrophysicist Jackie Faherty and learn how her recent research reversed this vantage point to ask “What stars are aligned to detect Earth transiting our Sun?”
Science teacher and Museum Master of Arts in Teaching alum Deion Desir pilots this immersive trip through space and time in OpenSpace, the interactive data visualization software designed to visualize the entire universe, for a new and dynamic view of the solar neighborhood in exploration of this question
Venue: American Museum of Natural History
