Solving the Puzzles of Planet Formation
NASA's Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) is searching around our Sun’s nearest neighbors for Earth-size planets. Dr. Elisa Quintana will discuss the wide array of planetary systems that TESS may find and the follow-up measurements that will reveal clues as to which planets might be rocky and which may have Earth-like atmospheres, ultimately shedding light on how planets form and whether our Solar System is unique.
