Some hot Jupiters that like living dangerously are spiraling rapidly into their stars. Could that be connected to how squishy and wobbly they are?
How do the protoplanetary disks around young pre-main sequence stars evolve into planetary systems? Come attend Dr. Catherine Espaillat’s plenary talk “From Disks to Planets: Observing Planet Formation in Disks Around Young Stars” at #AAS233 to know more!
Exquisite measurements of physical and chemical properties of protoplanetary disks from ALMA hold important clues to the history of planet formation. Come listen to Dr. Lauren Ilsedore Cleeves’ plenary lecture at #AAS233 to know more!
All things – from planets to needle-shaped rocks – in motion around their star (or other stars!) are narrating an interesting story about their history. Are we listening? Come attend Dr. Greg Laughlin’s plenary lecture at #AAS233 to know more!
On the third day of Christmas the ALMA gave to me, 20 highly resolved protoplanetary disks!
