Join Professor Conny Aerts for a Kavli Laureate Lecture about asteroseismic research and how it is helping scientists gain insight into the evolution of stars.
This program will highlight the research and accomplishments of Conny Aerts, a pioneer in Asteroseismology. Professor Aerts revolutionized the study of starquakes, bringing an entirely new way to learn about the stars. She will discuss how starquakes allow us to size, weigh, and age-date stars with unprecedented and impressive precision. Asteroseismology of host stars is the only way to determine the ages of exoplanets. Thus, asteroseismology and the search for habitable worlds outside our solar system, and perhaps even extraterrestrial life in the universe, go hand-in-hand.
