    Measuring the Speed of Stars More Precisely Than Your Car’s Speedometer

    Fri at 07:00 PM Open to Public
    20200605v

    The “doppler method” or “wobble method” of detecting planets orbiting other stars, requires precise measurements of the speeds of those distant stars. If we can see a star oscillating towards and away from us, we can infer that an unseen planet is tugging on its parent star as it orbits. We will learn just how hard it is to precisely measure the speeds of stars to the precision of 9 cm/s (0.2 mph!) necessary for finding these Earth-like planets. Next-generation ... more

    Oip

    Astronomers now know of thousands of worlds orbiting other stars in our galaxy. These so-called “exoplanets” are surprisingly diverse, spanning giant planets with super-heated atmospheres to small rocky worlds with rock vapor in their air. These findings are all leading up to the discovery everyone is waiting for - another planet like our own! Meet an Astronomer welcomes guest astronomer, Dr. Tyler Robinson, Assistant Professor at Northern Arizona University.
