The (DIAS) School of Cosmic Physics will tomorrow (19.10.17) host Professor Giovanna Tinetti of University College London for a public lecture on the exoplanets of the Milky Way. The lecture, entitled ‘Brave New Worlds: The Planets in our Galaxy’ will take place at 6.30pm in Theatre C (O’Connor Theatre – Room H2.22), Science Hub, University College Dublin, Belfield, Dublin 4.
Over the past 20 years, over 3,500 exoplanets – i.e. planets that orbit stars other than our Sun – have been discovered in distant planetary systems of the Milky Way. Tomorrow’s lecture will explore these exoplanets and the Earth’s place in our galaxy and, ultimately, in the universe.
The event is open to the public, free of charge. To register your attendance, go to: https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/brave-new-worlds-the-planets-in-our-galaxy-tickets-37247044914.
