Department of Astronomy pres.
The 2018-2019 Ralph B. Baldwin Award Reception and Lecture
Dr. Jaehan Bae, Postdoctoral Fellow, Department of Terrestrial Magnetism, Carnegie Institution of Washington
The studies of planet formation have been heavily dominated by theoretical work because observing planets in formation was not possible. The situation is, however, gradually changing. Thanks to increasingly powerful observing facilities and techniques, we are now able to peer into the birthplaces of planets – so-called circumstellar disks – and we routinely find signatures hinting at on-going planet formation therein. In this lecture I will introduce how planet formation theories are being tested with and improved by observational data, and discuss future directions to build a more complete picture of planet formation.
