On the Road to a Billion Planets

Over the last 30 years, the number of exoplanets discovered outside our solar system has increased exponentially. We are now poised at an incredibly exciting time where we are moving from characterisation of individual exoplanets to studying their populations. What we are finding over and over again is that nature has more imagination than we do! The number and configurations of solar systems we have found has, in fact, raised far more questions than it has answered. I will discuss some of the most interesting discoveries, and introduce the NASA TESS mission, which will provide thousands of new planets (and questions!) for us to explore.

Join us for an engaging afternoon during National Science Week.

WHERE: The Shipinn, South Bank, Brisbane
WHEN:   Saturday 11 August 2018
TIME:     3:00 pm – 4:30 pm with an opportunity to network following presentations

Dr Jessie Christiansen
NASA Exoplanet Science Institute at Caltech, USA


[nasaheadshot]Astrophysicist Dr Jessie Christiansen has been called the “Tomb Raider of exoplanet research”. A graduate of Griffith University, with a PhD from the University of New South Wales, she now works at the NASA Exoplanet Science Institute at Caltech. Jessie searches for, studies, and catalogues extrasolar planets – planets orbiting other stars. Her main research focuses on using the thousands of exoplanets found by the NASA Kepler mission to determine how common Earth-like planets might be in our galaxy. She is currently working on the NASA Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) which will search the entire sky to discover even more planets beyond our solar system.
