Sniffing Alien Atmospheres: Exoplanet Spectrophotometry (from ground-, airborne- and space-based observatories)
Presented by Daniel Angerhausen
NASA Goddard Space Flight Center

Thursday, October 1, 2015
11:00 A.M. in 169-336

In my presentation I will give a short introduction to the science of extrasolar planets, in particular the technique of transit, eclipse and phasecurve spectro-photometry. I will describe my various projects in this emerging field using state of the art spectroscopic and photometric instruments on the largest ground based telescopes, the 'flying telescope' SOFIA (Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy) and the Kepler and Hubble space telescopes.
