Dr. Joshua Pepper, Astronomer & Assistant Professor, Department of Physics, Lehigh University

"The Golden Age of Exoplanet Discovery"

The past two decades have seen an explosion of discovery of extrasolar planets. For the first time we can learn about the properties of other solar systems. Even though we detect most planets indirectly, we are not beginning to understand what kinds of planets and solar systems are found in our galaxy, and in the next few years we will know how common Earthlink planets are. He will describe the new results from exoplanets surveys including the Kepler space mission, and how we are laying the groundwork for searching for life on other planets.
