Searching for New Worlds

With the series The Universe Online, IA continues sharing the Universe through online sessions with different formats, like talks and quizzes. In these sessions, everyone is invited to take part.

Twenty-five years ago, the discovery of 51 Pegasi b started a revolution in the search for other worlds outside the Solar System. 

Ask your questions to researchers of Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço (IA) that are on the frontline of the search for another “Earth”. What was the impact of this first discovery, how does one find and caracterize these new worlds nowadays, how does Portugal contribute to this quest, and what to expect in the future? 

This month’s session of The Universe Online is part of the European Researchers Night 2020 programme.

Live transmission on IA’s channel on YouTube.
