Searching for Nearby Exoplanets

Gordon Current Science & Technology Center Stage, Blue Wing, Level 1

Friday, February 21; 12:30 pm

Dr. Tansu Daylan is an astrophysicist at MIT working on the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS). This orbiting telescope has discovered dozens of worlds orbiting other stars, and scientists hope it will reveal up to 20,000 more in the next few years. Dr. Daylan will talk about his work improving the data analysis of TESS images in order to be able to detect even fainter exoplanets.
