How do we find planets orbiting stars other than our Sun? How do we know what they’re made of, or if they’re Earth-like? Dr. Teske will discuss how exoplanets’ composition is “inherited” from their host star ‘’genes,” and will highlight new exoplanet discoveries and the Carnegie Institution’s pivotal role in understanding exoplanet formation and composition.
