Another Pale Blue Dot: Inside the SETI Institute’s Search for Exoplanets

Frank Marchis

Dr. Marchis presents Another Pale Blue Dot: Inside the SETI Institute’s Search for Exoplanets, a talk on the search for planets beyond our solar system - referred to as exoplanets. In only two decades, scientists have gone from the mere speculation about exoplanets to being able to observe them through a variety of methods. Dr. Marchiswill discuss new and sophisticated projects designed to provide images of these exoplanets. Future instruments could soon deliver an image of a cousin of Earth, or another Pale Blue Dot, a planet similar to our own. The talk will be followed by a demonstration of the Unistellar eVscope, an innovative robotic telescope developed in partnership with the SETI Institute.

Speaker: Frank Marchis, SETI
