The World of Exo Planets a talk by Matthew Lodge

The World of Exoplanets

A talk by Matthew Lodge

Exoplanets are planets that exist beyond our solar system, orbiting stars other than the sun.

They are fascinating objects of study for astronomers and astrobiologists, as they provide valuable information about the formation and evolution of planets in the universe.

These planets come in different sizes, and some of them can be larger or smaller than the Earth. Some exoplanets are classified as “super-Earths” because they are slightly larger than our planet, while others are called “mini-Neptunes” because they are smaller than Neptune.

There are also exoplanets that are classified as “gas giants” because they are much larger than Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system.

The discovery of exoplanets has revolutionized our understanding of the universe, and scientists continue to search for more of these fascinating objects.

By studying their orbits and properties, researchers hope to unravel the mysteries of planet formation and the potential for life beyond our solar system.
