In this class we are going to be talking about exoplanets (planets that orbit stars other than our own Sun!). Upto this point there have now been over 4000 planets that have been discovered orbiting stars other than our own Sun. Most of the planetary systems found do not resemble our Solar System whatsoever and are full of unusual and exotic planets that are stranger than science fiction!
In this class we will look at how these planets are discovered through a variety of techniques, the planets made of diamond and if there has been a planet found that may be habitable for humans.
Safeguarding reminder:The safety of your child is of the utmost importance. All of our classes are pre-recorded to remove any concerns around live participation. For reruns of our past live classes, students' webcams and microphones were disabled and only the chat history, if participation was requested, is visible.
This class is suitable for all students of Physics who want to study Exoplanets In Years 10-11 or S4-S5.
